We have two projects in Jira - A and B

Project A depends on project B. For now, I have separate Jira scrum boards for these projects but I need to display some of the tasks from project A on the scrum board from project B.
What JQL do I need to use to achieve this? Is it required any additional configuration of the board required?

"to display some of the tasks from project A"  -  let's say i would like to display tasks visible on  project A from username X.

Do both projects relate to the same product, due to one depending on the other?

One of these projects - B produces software which will be used by A. I also wonder how to keep my items in Jira clean

I have found solution fo this:

to display some of the tasks from project A on a Jira board from Project B i edited Filter Query:

(project = X AND "Epic Link" = X) or ( project = A and assignee = <person_whos_task_to_display) ORDER BY Rank ASC

A very simple way is to use a Label. Have a label that can be used by all Jira Projects.  Then include that label in your Jira Board query.  This makes it easier to maintain rather than having to update the query every time a new individual is added to your assignee list. It also sets a standard for your entire organization on how to share information across boards. 

We use this whenever we are doing work for other teams, especially when it is something related.  

Project = X or labels in ("label 1, "label 2") ....
