Boards are not containers for issues, they are a view of them.  You do not "create an issue in a board".  You create an issue in a project. 

If it appears on a board when it is created, that is because the board is set up to select that issue.

Typically, a new issue in a project will go into a backlog, not a sprint (current or future).  Are you finding your new issues going into the current sprint?  If so, you've set something up to make that happen.

Thanks for reply.


this what i am exactly looking for.


I will create an issue and i will have  them tracked outside the sprint. 

and i need to have  report for such created task.

Right, so create issues as normal.  Then build reports based on "sprint is empty" to find issues that did not go into a sprint.

Thanks for the reply

You can create a different board (for exmaple Kanban board) and put on the board all tasks that are not in the spint. Then you can track such issues on the board.

Thanks for the reply.


But when i created the task under the separate board, i am able to see this created task id in the existing board . 

This doesn't make much sense when i create a task in same board and not tagging to the current sprint.

Can you help me in further to solve this issue

Again, issues do not exist "in boards".  The boards select a set of issue to view.

When you "created the task under the separate board,", you created an issue.  That issue matched the filter for the other board, so the other board shows it.

Please, try to understand that boards are not containers.
