Where is my backlog and future sprints?

After the new layout that came out today(?), I'm missin the backlog and future sprints for agile boards. The icon that used to be backlog is now Reports (go figure)


I can only see my current active sprint - or all tasks in one big list (which is not very good UX)

Please help, where can I find it again?

I verified this issue is occurring due to a bug, as you can see on GHS-11672.

If you are JIRA-Administrators. Please do the following

  • Access JIRA as administrator
  • Click on the cogwheel icon
  • Click on Add-ons
  • Click on Manage add-ons (left menu)
  • Search for JIRA Agile
  • Click on the 'Disable' button and then 'Enable'.

After that the buttons should be back.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Natasja,

It seems its a Kanban board, so there's no Plan mode.
You can check on a Scrum board, you'll see different icons.

Thanks and regards,

I have the same issue and my board is a scrum board.  I need to access my backlogs to prioritise my sprints please.

I have had to disable the new project navigation, which takes me back a version previous to the last one.

Hi all,


Thanks for your answers / insight. I am pretty sure that I have a scrum board (but it is not me who set it up to begin with).

But this morning when I entered the page, I've got my ussually icons back, and therefor also my backlog smile 


So maybe it was just a "error" on the website yesterday...



I still don't see Scrum Work and Plan views in the new Project Navigation:
