What is board?
A board displays all the issues that occurs within the project, providing you a flexible way of viewing, managing, and reporting the progress on work.
There are three types of boards that exist in Jira:
Scrum board is divided into three parts:
The above screen shows the backlog which contains an issue TP-1 whose description is that login button is not working.
Steps to create an active sprint:
The above screen shows the Backlog which contains an issue "Login button is not working".
The above screen shows that sprint is created named as Sprint 1.

The above screen shows that HEL-1 issue that we created is added to the backlog.
Reporting is an activity that will be performed throughout the project. Reports are made which are used to show the information about your project, versions, epic, sprints, and issues.
Next-gen board is the same as classic scrum and kanban board. However, next-gen does not provide all the features in the beginning, it provides the feature only when you need. The Next-gen project can be done in two templates, i.e., Next-gen Scrum and Next-gen Kanban.

Next-gen project can be created in the following steps:
The above screen shows that we have chosen the Scrum template, we can also change the template by clicking on the link Change template. After selecting the template, enter the project name, we have given the Testing project as a project name. Click on the Create button.
Note: Both Next-Gen Scrum and Next-Gen Kanban projects have a Roadmap feature which shows the progress of a team, and it also defines the deadline of a project.
