How do i filter on a custom field on the jira board


I have a large project that has multiple teams working from the same backlog.  I added team names to assign the stories to.  How can I filter the board to display only the team that I am currently working with?  The board is much too noisy if it is not filtered.

I can see a default filter option in the backlog view that has labels as an option to filter.  However I do not see that on the Scrum board.  At a mininium how can I get labels to be a filer on the scrum board.  (although I prefer team)


thank you

I haven't found a solution yet. My work around was to use the Label field for filtering since it comes as default filter on the board.

i dont see this available as a filter

please let me know how i can do this on the scrum board- I only see this as an option in the backlog view

I'd suggest making a new board for every team. The JQL filter for each board should include an argument like "AND labels = "Scrum Team A".

Make sure you make the filter viewable to your entire org or else the backlog and scrum board will be blank to everyone except the JQL filter owner. You also have to make sure every single issue for that team has the label "Scrum Team A".
