I've heard that themes/initiatives should not be visible in a backlog. Is this true? Am I supposed to configure a separate workflow for Initiatives/Themes?
For context: I was able to configure Epics/Stories/Task, and I understand that I can assign themes/initiatives to these, but what if I don't want them displayed in (and cluttering) the backlog?
I'm still new to JIRA so I hope these questions make sense!
Thanks for your help!
Themes will not be visible in the backlog, they currently only exist in the Portfolio space.
Initiatives will show up in your backlog, however you can simply amend you board query to include "and issuetype != Initiative" and they won't clutter your backlog.
If you did want a way to easily see or rank your Initiatives I would suggest creating an Initiative only board.
Hope this helps,
