"Hide completed issues older than" on Kanban Boards

We're using Jira Cloud and unfortunately there is no such setting in our Board settings. I assume this is one of those many things which are available for Jira Server but didn't make it into Jira Cloud. How can I accomplish the same functionality in Jira Cloud?

@Oliver Schlüter , you can certainly do this in Cloud using the Kanban sub-filter, e.g.

fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY  and (status != Done or (status = Done and resolutiondate >= startOfDay(-10d))

Hey Jack, thank you very much! 

Works magic! Thanks! Just missed single closing parenthesis:

fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY  and (status != Done or (status = Done and resolutiondate >= startOfDay(-10d)))


Sorry to dig up an old thread, but when I paste the query into my Jira Cloud instance

then hit update; it removes the last set of brackets!

The query seems to work ok but anyone got any ideas why it would chose to do that?

The underlying JQL code will optimize the query if possible.

Please note that since this initially was posted the newer kanban boards will offer a separate aging field. Do you happen to see that?

Yes I can see the aging field in the General board settings, the issue we had was we used Automation to update some fields on some tickets that were missing the detail we wanted, this also updated some old historic tickets closed a long time back but they re-appeared on the board this week (the implication being the "Hide completed issues older than" filter seems to be looking at last updated date rather than resolution date

Edited to add: looks like this is a known issue :) Implication of Kanban board setting "Hide Complete... (

Yes that is looks at last updated.

Hiiii @Oliver Schlüter 

I have never worked with jira cloud. But in server, in a board ing vie backlow or active sprint view, we have board button at top right side of the board. If you click on it dropdown menu open if you click on configure, at the left side, you have quick filter. You can write a jql in that (for example updated >= -2w and status = closed ) you can write some jql for that. And if you come back to backlog view or active sprint view you can see the name of  quick filter that you have made and then click on it to show your completed issues in last 2 weeks.


Best Regards 

Hey Ashkan,

thanks for the reply. I'm not looking for a solution based on quick filters but I'd rather have the board limit the tickets that show up by default. 

Any answer back ?

@Joao Borges , please post a new question so someone can respond.

Thanks @Jack Brickey  - Im just trying to figure out  a way to avoid tickets that done showing up in the backlog - I dont want to add a filter, which doesnt help. I want to make sure those tickets marked as done, do not appear in my backlog list  -thanks
