The Ultimate extension pack for Jira Software

Manage complex product Backlogs and Agile Boards in a robust and efficient manner, and deliver value to customers much faster

New features for your Board & Backlog

The Agile Tools & Filters app extends the original Jira Software Boards & Backlogs by adding over 20 new improvements and advanced tools. 


More than 25 features

Board features

User friendly Search Bar for Board & Backlog

Use the graphical Search Bar, and forget about Quick Filters. The board can be filtered dynamically using dropdowns in basic mode or JQL in advanced mode.  Search queries can be saved as Private Filters.

JQL filtering for advanced users

The advance mode allows you to use JQL queries directly on the board and backlog. The editor fully supports JQL validation, auto-completion and wildcards.

Horizontal Scroll Bar for multicolumn boards

Horizontal scroll allows you to handle multicolumn boards easily. No more unreadable, super thin cards.

Adjustable card size

When the horizontal scroll is enabled you can adjust the minimum column width. All cards will be resized to selected size.

Improved print cards functionality

Filter the board and print visible cards directly from your board or backlog. Additionally, if you're using Agile Cards app, you'll be able to find and print cards that weren't previously printed. A new "unprinted issues" button will appear on the screen.

Agile Bulk Change by swimlanes

You can filter the board and update visible tasks directly from the board in a single click. Additionally you will be able to select swim-lanes to be included in the bulk operation if swimlanes are build using JQL.

Customisable search bar fields

Customise the search bar by selecting default filtering fields. You can apply default fields configuration to all boards globally or customise just a single board.

Highlight selected fields on the search bar

To simplify filtering and navigation selected fields will be automatically highlighted.

Look at the Issue Search Customiser app for the same feature for Jira Core.

Improved board loading time

Filtering will reduce the number of issues displayed on the board or backlog. This will speed up the overall board perfomance. The next time you enter a filtered board, it will be loaded up to 90% faster.



Share a filtered board using URL

If you use shared filters on a board or backlog, copy the URL and share it via:

  • eMail
  • Confluence
  • HipChat
  • Twitter/FB or any other channel

Backlog features

Live text search on Epics & Versions panels

Use the live search input for fast text search, using project key, name or issue key. You can use the pipe character " | " to  search for multiple list items.  For example "1.8|1.9|epic123".

JQL filtering on Epics & Versions panels

Find epics or versions using a component or label. Filter Epics & Versions panels using the main search bar or JQL statements.

Filters can be saved using the Save as... option and loaded from the filter list.

Private & shared filters for Epics & Versions panels

JQL search queries can be saved as private (visible only to the creator) or shared filters. For example, you can put your epics or versions into groups or a Scrum Master can prepare filters for the planning session.

Using the Filter Manager tool, you can export your Epics panel filters to any other backlog.

Pre-defined Epics & Versions panels filters

Predefined Epic & Versions panels filters including: EmptyNon-emptyCompletedUncompletedEstimatedUnestimated.

Filters are "intelligent". For example, you can select Empty and Non-empty filter at the same time and they will not exclude each other as Quick filters would do.

Additionally filters are persistent. After the board is refreshed, filters will be automatically loaded.

Lock Epics & Versions panels JQL filtering to the main filtering bar

JQL seems to be too complex for you? No worries. Use the board main search bar to filter EPICS panel using graphical drop-downs.

Once unlocked, the board's JQL will be copied to JQL panel. Then, you can continue to filter the EPICS panel separately.

Run JQL search directly on epics or on issues liked to epics

Change the JQL search mode on the epics panel. JQL query will be executed against epics or issues linked to epics. For example you can find epics using component1 or find epics by issues using component 1.

Sync EPICS & VERSIONS panels to visible issues on the backlog

Sync to issues option will limit the number of epics & versions to the cards visible on the backlog.

If Quick Filters or main search bar is used, the panels will be automatically updated.

Show epics version & status labels

Show workflow status label on the Epics panel to see which epics are in Done status. Such epics could be easily identified and Marked as Done or reopened if some issues are still in progress.  

Show version label option will identify Epics directly linked to a version.

Show epics directly linked to a selected version

If an Epic is directly linked to a version it will not be filtered out from the epics panel list. This functionality will help you to identify Epics used by a version.

By default, hide filtered epics & versions

To simplify Epic & Versions panels navigation, filtered list items will be hidden by default. Both panels have a Show filtered... option to show the filtered list items again.

Agile Bulk Change by backlog & sprints

Using a simple dialog any user can select sprints or backlog tasks to be included in the bulk operation. 

For example, you can change all tasks from a selected sprint in just one click.


Private & shared filters

Private "Quick Filters" for board & backlog

Any board user can create a set of his own private board or backlog filters. You can separate filters into planning, reporting and board filters. You can load them from the list located on the main search bar. Advanced filter management is available under the Filter Manager  tool.

"Save as" filter functionality from the Issue Search screen

Create private, shared or Quick Filters using a simple Save as dialog.

The dialog uses standard Jira permissions that's why only the board administrator can create shared or Quick Filters.

Advanced filter manager

The Agile Board Filter comes with an advanced filter manager.

It supports Jira and all new filter types:

  • Private & shared board filters
  • Private & shared backlog filters
  • Private & shared epics panel filters
  • Private & shared versions panel filters
  • Quick Filters
  • Favourite Jira filters

Copy, re-order, update, import, export or delete a filter. Use the manager to copy filters between boards.


  • Quick Filters can be only managed by Board Administrator
  • Shared Filters can be only managed by the Board Administrator
  • Favourite JIRA filters can be only imported as private, shared or Quick Filters
Turn private filters into Quick Filters

Private filters allow you to reduce the number of Quick Filters on the board. You can use the Filter Manager to copy existing Quick Filters into private or shared filters.

Simplified Quick Filters management

Quick filters can be easily created using Save as dialog directly form the board or backlog. Using Filter Manager, quick filters can be deleted, re-ordered or copied as private or shared filters.

Additionally, quick filters bar can be hidden using board or global configuration.

Import & export filters between boards

Advanced users can export any filters using JSON text format and import them to new boards. That way, Quick Filters can be copied between boards or even Jira instances.


Advanced tools

Find unprinted cards while using Agile Cards by Spartez

Save a lot of time & paper.

A new "unprinted" button will appear on the top of the board or backlog. It can be used to identify cards which have not been printed by the Agile Cards plugin yet.

Enable or disable Agile Board Filter on selected boards

The  board administrator can enable or disable the search bar on selected boards. It is useful for small projects which don't require such powerful search features.

Disable Quick Filters bar

Gain more screen space on your board and backlog by disabling Quick Filters.

Advanced global & board configuration

Configuration can be set for all boards globally or individually per board. Each team can customise the way they want to use a board.

Board configuration will always overwrite global settings.

You'll be able to:

  • Disable search bar or quick filters
  • Customise search bar features
  • Customise search bar fields
  • Apply screen layout optimisation
Tools & filters menu

Configuration and help can be easily accessed from the main search bar menu.

Build in on-boarding

New users will get a 4-step introduction into new functionalities.
