Hi @Bishnu Prasad Pandey

The easiest method of doing this is to search via the filter ID, as the board is a visual representation of a filter. To do this:

  1. Go to the Board in question
  2. In the top-right, select Options (3-dots) and choose Board Settings
  3. Go to the General tab on the left-hand menu
  4. Select "Edit Filter Query"
  5. In the URL, take a note of the filter's ID; it will look like this - ?filter=XXXX - take the numbers after the equals
  6. Now go into Issue Search and you can enter something such as: project = ABC and filter = XXXXX - that will let you search by project and "board"


Hi Stephen, 

that solution would work for classical projects. How can I create a filter of issues on a board of a next-gen project?



Hi @Nuria LLobera

You can just search by Project Key to see which issues are on a Next-Gen Board - as the board's filter is all project issues at this time.

You could filter out "Done" if you prefer, to show only open issues.

If you're asking how to create a board filter for Next-Gen, that's not yet available. For this I would suggest voting/watching the ideas JSWCLOUD-17444 and JSWCLOUD-17331 - which cover filters and board settings for Next-Gen.

Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_

I followed the URL filter's ID approach and get cyclical reference error.

I understand the rationale of the error as its exactly what we try to achive to separate issues (from two boards) under one project. Any thoughts?

Field 'filter' with value 'xxxxx' matches filter 'xxxxx Board' and causes a cyclical reference, this query can not be executed and should be edited.

Thanks Michal

Hi @Michal Jurasek 

What are you trying to achieve with your search?


Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_

I tried to create two independent boards within one/the same project, so I can see only issues related to the given board on the Kanban board and Issues from the sidebar.

The URL filter ID approach did not work for me in the board configuration "Edit Filter Query" due to the cyclical reference error.

The approach with the component worked fine and helped with Kanban board view but in the Issues (accessed via sidebar) I still see all issues in the Project and could not figure out how to display only Issues for the board.

My conclusion - Issues (located at the sidebar) are Project issues and not a board issues and therefore I cannot display/filter them on board level.


Thanks Michal

Hi @Michal Jurasek 

Yes the side-bar option is issues within the project - not specifically just those on the board.

You can search for issues which are specific to the board in issue search (by replicating the filter query from the board) but it won't show up on in the "Issues" section this way by default.


Hi @Bishnu Prasad Pandey if you want to retrieve the issues on a specific Board, go to the Board > Configuration > General > search for the saved Filter Query.

Example: project = 31354 AND component = "xxxxxxxx" ORDER BY Rank ASC

Each board has it's own, and it the same filter you can save in order to access the issues on the current Board.

Hope this helps you.

Kind regards.

Hi @Mario Rodriguez Redondo 

I have set up the Filter Query on the board with component and it helps with the issues on the Kanban board but still see all issues in the project under Issues = the filter query is not reflected in the Issues.

I am on Jira v7.13.8

Thanks Michal

Unless you use a custom field, label or component to tag each issue on the board (and in the query), the only option I have found is to use versions/releases or Epics to add to the filter.  It would be great if it were easier, but so far this is the world we live in.

One additional thought (outside of something more complicated with automation and scriptrunner) would be to link all issues to something and check for it as a subquery:
project = "CBA"  and issue in linkedIssues("CBA-111") ORDER BY RANK ASC

Good luck.

Thank you Danny
