Your board's filter is a JIRA issue filter (a JQL query) that specifies which issues are included on your board. For example, your board may include issues from multiple projects, or from only one project, or from a particular component of a project.
Note that only the owner of a board (or a person with the 'JIRA Administrators' global permission) can configure a board's filter.

The Work sub-filter is only available for Kanban boards.
