If there was a way to have Component be a filter on the Kanban board I wouldn't need to maintain one kanban board for each one. 

One work-around might be to create Quick Filters, but then I have to create one filter for every combination of components I want to filter by.  Sometimes I want to see a combination of 3 or 4 or 5 components.

Another work-around would be to use swimlanes, but I'm already using swimlanes for Priority.

Hello @Jason Glover 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

The presences of those filter pull-downs is managed automatically by Jira, based on there being values on which to filter.

It does not appear that they have included Components as one of those automatically available filters, and there is no way for us to add it in.

I was looking for, but have not yet found, a change request for this in their public backlog.

Sorry, can you expand on that? How does it decide what fields to include? 

I'm having the same issue. I've created a new board, and it's giving the following fields as drop-downs, but I need Components on there, as I already have a number of quickfilters for other things. 

  • Epic
  • Label
  • Type
  • Quickfilters

Hello @Steven White 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

Review my previous answer:

You would have to make individual Quick Filters based on JQL for each Component value.

I thought that was going to be the answer, but was hoping to avoid the need for that as the team already have a large number of quick filters and was trying to slim them down

oh well

I'm about to setup a Jira project having 30-50 components. Those are fixed and should be used to detail the issues better. I would rather not allow labels for this since everyone can add / change them → it would mess up. For a better visualization and narrowing the Kanban, a drop-down filter for on components like the filter on labels would be essential to proceed in Jira. Is there any plan to bring this feature in?
