In the next-gen project, I see the 'To Do' status for tickets, in the Backlog and the Board, how can I distinguish between the two in a filter easily?
The only way I could do this, was by assigning a story point or finding a common feature to add to the Board tickets vs. the Backlog tickets.
Ex. All tickets in Board have story pt estimate = 1, All tickets in Backlog story pt estimate is empty
Any other better way to get this distinction?
I understand that you are looking to understand how to see in a JQL filter which issues in a next-gen project are on the board and which are in the backlog. For a next-gen project when an issue gets moved onto the board, this is the equivalent of being placed into a sprint. Issues that exist in the backlog are not yet in any sprint.
In turn we can search for these in advanced JQL by looking like so:
project=ABC and sprint is empty
^ will return all the issues in that project that are in the backlog (have no sprint). While the query of:
project=ABC and sprint is not empty
^ will return issues in that project that are on the board (already part of a sprint).
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
Unfortunately, no. In order for this to work, that next-gen project will need to have the Sprints feature enabled in it. Only then will those issues gain this sprint field which you can then use to lookup such values in JQL.
Otherwise, I do not believe there is currently anyway to determine which issues are on the board vs backlog via JQL.
My case is probably a bit unusual because I am the sole individual in my next-gen JIRA project, but what I do is the following:
This way, if I craft JQL queries, I can distinguish between the backlog and kanban board by seeing if the assignee field is populated or not.
I also do not use the sprint functionality in my next-gen project, only the backlog and kanban board.
That's the best idea I've come up with until they expose a backlog identifier of some sort in JQL.
Jira is a powerful tool that helps teams to plan, manage, and report on their work. We love using Jira, especially for its ability to track issue progress. But how to monitor the...
