Quick filters Edited


I would like to create quick filters to sort the Backlog

-by Project 

-by task priority


I did find this page:

but I don't know what field/keyword I can use apart from  'assignee' or 'type'.


Thank you

Quick filters do not sort the backlog, they are to narrow the view to a selection of the issues within the board.  Your backlog is sorted by the board filter (which should be "rank" to allow you to change the order - it could be other things, but you will then lose the ability to order the issues)

Thanks, it behaved as you described. I realised I don't need to sort by priority as I can reorder the tasks myself therefore rank was the right setting for me by default

You seem to view the article about Confluence and your question is tagged "Jira" so I assume it is about Jira.

To filter issues this way you should create the following JQL:

project = <project name> ORDER BY priority ASC/DESC

ASC/DESC - depends on where the issues with the highest priority appear - on the bottom/top respectively.

thank you, the 'order by' didn't work but I was able to create some filters per project

I have created a scrum board under a project, which already has a kanban board associated with it.  When I create a ticket in the new scrum board its also appearing in the kanban board.  I think I need to implement some quick filters, but I am unsure how to create this?
