This Plugin adds features, that enable agile teams to work efficiently with OpenProject in Scrum projects.

Find a more detailed description on

Together with the plugin OpenProject PDF Export, story cards can be exported as printable PDF documents.


The OpenProject Backlogs plug-in requires the OpenProject Core in version greater or equal to 3.0.0.


OpenProject Backlogs depends on OpenProject PDF export Plugin. Thus, if you haven't done it already, add the following lines to the Gemfile.plugins to your OpenProject installation (if you use a different OpenProject version than OpenProject 5, adapt :branch => "stable/5" to your OpenProject version):

gem "openproject-pdf_export", git: "", :branch => "stable/5"

For OpenProject Backlogs itself you need to add the following line to the

Gemfile.plugins of OpenProject (if you use a different OpenProject version than OpenProject 5, adapt :branch => "stable/5" to your OpenProject version):

gem "openproject-backlogs", git: "", :branch => "stable/5"

Afterwards, run:

bundle install

This plugin contains migrations. To migrate the database, run:

rake db:migrate


Remove the line

gem "openproject-backlogs", git: "", :branch => "stable/5"

from the file Gemfile.plugins and run:

bundle install

Please not that this leaves plugin data in the database. Currently, we do not support full uninstall of the plugin.
