One Project Multiple Boards

I have setup a project in JIRA where I want to keep all stories, issues and epics. I have created one scrum board and kanban board which works off the same backlog which is perfect as I can group them in epics for reporting. When I create another scrum board it is just the same instance of the other scrum board with different name, when I move a story off one board it will do the same for the other? 

Ideally I want two sprints to be happening simultaneously but are working on different releases. How can I achieve this without having to create a new project?

Hi, since every board has it's own filter there won't be any problem having more than one board per project. But keep in mind that if a issue changes status it will behave differently in the boards depending on the configuration you have.

Hey, that doesn't really answer my question though? Is it possible for the the two boards have separate sprints with different dates? Is there a tutorial on how to setup the filters?

Here you can check how to configure the filters: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Configuring+Filters If I remember correctly an issue can only be assigned to one sprint. So you can have two boards with their own separate sprints and different days as long as they don't have the same issues in their filters.

sorry, different 'dates'
