Help get my backlog back to open issues that are not in a sprint...

After creating our second sprint using the Greenhopper scrum board, I was editing configuration settings trying to figure out a way to show assignees in the backlog display. I was not successful, but what did happen was my backlog changed to show all issues ever created, including resolved ones. This impacts us at the present time as we want to do backlog grooming. I am most interested in just getting the backlog back to only open issues that are not part of a sprint.

Getting the assignees to how up in the planning board would be a minor bonus. (Since we are a small team (4) I jut added quick filters to filter on each assignee)

I edited the filter to only look at "unresolved" issues, and that made the backlog look correct, but when I resolved an issue it dissapeared from the work board, unsurprisingly.

What I cannot figure out - is there some kind of "sub filter" if that is the right concept, tht pulls items out of the filtered project for display in the backlog? I presume there must be, but I cannot find it on the normal configuration screens.

Hi David,

The filter is used for all the modes in the board. Since you are displaying only 'unresolved' issues, the moment you resolve them, they will no longer be displayed since the filter is not retrieving resolved issues.

I'd advise you to raise an issue at so we can help you correcting the filter to display the issues on the backlog.

As for the assignee, for now it is not possible to display this field on the backlog.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
