Filtering cards on a project board

You can filter the cards on a project board to search for specific cards or view a subset of the cards.

On a card, you can click any assignee or label to filter the project board by that qualifier. To clear the search, you can click the same assignee or label again.

You can also use the "Filter cards" search bar at the top of each project board to search for cards. You can filter cards using the following search qualifiers in any combination, or by simply typing some text you'd like to search for.

  • Filter cards by author using author:USERNAME
  • Filter cards by assignee using assignee:USERNAME or no:assignee
  • Filter cards by label using label:LABEL, label:"MULTI-WORD LABEL NAME", or no:label
  • Filter cards by state using state:open, state:closed, or state:merged
  • Filter by review status using review:none, review:required, review:approved, or review:changes_requested
  • Filter by check status using status:pending, status:success, or status:failure
  • Filter cards by type using type:issue, type:pr, or type:note
  • Filter cards by state and type using is:open, is:closed, or is:merged; and is:issue, is:pr, or is:note
  • Filter cards by repository in an organization-wide project board using repo:ORGANIZATION/REPOSITORY
  1. Navigate to the project board that contains the cards you want to filter.
  2. Above the project card columns, click into the "Filter cards" search bar and type a search query to filter the cards.
