How to remove closed sprints from a structure

I am trying to set up a structure that shows the issues planned for current and future sprints (including the backlog).

The following automation is set up:

"insert issues from"  is set to add non-epics.
The problem is that the filter "Show Sprint: Active ...." does not seem to have any effect:
structure closed sprints.PNG

The problem is that if a issue has been moved trough sprints the sprint field includes many spint values, typically 1, 2, 5, 6, 10 and so on.
It then ends up in all those sprints. The filter does not seem to have any effect. 

I can get rid of the closed ones by adding another filter like "resolution != unresolved", but the ones still open will be shown in all sprints they have been part of. 

I would expect them to end up in the backlog. How can I achieve that?

As a workaround you can add structure transformation Filter (Hide closed sprints). It works for me. 

Hi Lars, 

How are you? 

As Piotr mentioned, for now, the workaround would be to use the (Hide Closed Sprints) generator as a quick transformation.

Quick Transformations:

Currently, The Hide Closed Sprint generator only works when applied to a sub-structure (Insert > Structure) 

We already have an improvement task for this limitation, and we'll be evaluating where this fits into our roadmap.

I'll make sure to post an update on your question if and when it becomes available.

(Thank you for using Structure).

Hej Mario - any further progress on these improvements? I would love to be able to hide closed sprints both when inserting Sprints as a column, and not having them shown when e.g. grouping by sprints

I am using Structure cloud, Is this issue resolved ? I want to see last 6 Sprints only (Closed or Open). 


I am facing same issue: The problem is that if a issue has been moved trough sprints the sprint field includes many spint values, typically 1, 2, 5, 6, 10 and so on. SO I see old sprints also. 

I did find a workaround for this that works quite well (We have server, but I guess it would work in cloud as well):

Add an automation filter->JQL Query with the following query: "sprint in openSprints ()"

On my side I still see some closed sprints, but the list is much shorter. 

I've tried every single suggestion in here, but no matter which way I go through, from using a quick transformation to hide closed sprints to applying a generator when inserting as a sub-structure, but I still keep seeing most of the closed sprints no matter what.

Can anyone help explain why this is a thing? As it has been explained in other posts, if a task has been moved from one sprint to the next, it will keep getting duplicated under every closed sprint it's been a part of, instead of just showing me the currently active sprint and future sprints.
