Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Working with filters for project backlog

Each board created with GreenHopper automatically creates a Jira filter for you. This filter contains the backlog item's listing criteria. To view the configured filter for your board, go to your team board. Open the Tools action, click on Configure, and select the Filter tab.

As shown in the preceding screenshot, the following filter information is available:

  • Saved Filter: The Jira filter containing the backlog item's selection criteria.

  • Shares: With whom all the board items will be shared is configured via filter sharing permissions.

  • Filter Query: The JQL query used in the selected filter as selection criteria.

  • Ranking: Allows ordered ranking of issues on the Plan mode.

Each project has large backlog items, ideally at a particular moment you only work on part of the large backlog items. Jira filtering capability allows you to filter on your backlog using different filtering criteria. To edit filters in Jira, click on the View in Issue Navigator link...
