Filter, filter & filter

Hi All,

 

Lately I became, a “filter expert”, which means exploring JIRA capabilities for customized it for our scrum board, roles & teams. On the one hand, I really love the idea of exploring or extending JIRA capabilities for example by using the followed function: “linkedIssuesOfRecursiveLimited”. Where else, I can learn such tool, configure or customized it & sometimes even mess it up. On the other hand, adding filter or configure it on weekly basis, it is more of JIRA administration than be a scrum master (SM). So, I’m considering working at JIRA/Atlassian…not really.

 

As I see it, scrum meaning should keep simplicity, efficiency & user friendly – so, it’s supporting tool –in this case, JIRA. In my vision, you configure scrum board at the project beginning & that it.

The opposite is occurring in actual:

Ø  Working on filters on weekly basis,

Ø  Managing more than 20 different filters for example:

·         story with bugs but only GA blocker

·         Stories without Epic

·         Unassigned stories

 

We even solved some challenges:

Ø  Filter should caught stories or bugs from different projects,

Ø  We found out that filter has 255 char limit & bypass it,

Ø  We learned to use complex filter as “linkedIssuesOfRecursiveLimited”.

 

I really, like to hear how you handle JIRA filters from the followed aspects:

Frequency: Daily, weekly, monthly.

Should we allow large or small filter amount?

Does filter should be complex or simple?

If you have any other insights regarding JIRA filters, please feel free to share.

 

Enjoy,

Gilad
