An entity can only be pulled into one custom Kanban Board

Stephanie Davis May 17, 2023

I discovered custom Kanban boards and found it to be a really nice feature for  customizing a card view of Epics until I realized that you can only pull an Epic into a single Kanban.  Why does this limitation exist?  It shouldn't matter how many custom Kanbans I want to pull the same Epic into.  I might have a Marketing custom Kanban and then one for Product Management which might both have the same Epic.

Hello @Stephanie Davis , yes, the cards can be pulled into one board only. I think the reason behind this is, that double work should be avoided. If you see a Kanban boards as a tool a team is actively working with, the limitation makes sense. If you want to use Kanban boards to visualize upcoming items for certain (multiple) teams, your requested feature would be a nice improvement.

However, we (catworkx) currently do not miss this feature as our customers have Jira linked to Jira Align. For Features/Stories these views can be achieved easily with Jira Kanban boards. For the portfolio level this is not possible as the Epics remain in Jira Align.

Maybe this is a workaround for your use case: if you want to have a view on portfolio epics that are relevant for a certain team only, you can work with tags. Tag the epics interesting for your marketing team and apply a tag filter in the Kanban board room.

If that's not helpful for your case, you can request this feature at the ideation portal for Jira Align here:
