Board on JIRA Core server

Hi everyone,

I've been testing Jira Core Cloud and so far, it has been pretty nice.

So friday, we decided to install Jira Core Server and get on with it for our organisation. However, I can't find a Kanban Board on this version. Is that normal ?

Is there an free add-on (server version) that could cover this missing feature ?

I can't check it by myself, since the server Jira is installed on, doesn't have an internet connection.

Thanks you very much

If you install Jira Core, then boards for Core exist only in Cloud. For Server you would need Jira Software to use boards.

First of all, thanks for your quick answer.


However, in said discussion, it has been nearly 2 years since someone mentionned :

"Boards for Core are a "labs" feature on Cloud installations only.

They're definitely coming, but they're not quite ready yet, so they aren't on Server versions"


And the add-on indicated (Cards) isn't free.

Do you know of anything similar which would not be charged ?



There's nothing that does anything resembling "boards" for free.

Hi guys,

We understand Kanban board is a very important but missing feature in Core and Service Desk projects (we know as we also use Jira internally), so we have tried hard to bring that to you via this plugin

It has even more powerful features then Jira Core Board in cloud such as:

  • Transition, rank issues anywhere on board based on workflow configuration (Yes you can configure multiple workflows per issue type).
  • View and edit issue details via the full issue details view popup or even more handy with inline issue edit.
  • Filtering issues based on assignee, labels or JQL based Quick Filters configured in Board Settings.
  • Group issues by assignee, subtasks. You're able to collapse columns as well to make the board cleaner.
  • Other powerful board settings: 
    • Column status mapping and other column mutations: create / delete / rename / reorder. Moreover, you can set column constraints (min / max) based on issue count.
    • Card colours based on issue types, priorities or even JQL for more advanced use cases.
    • Card Layouts settings to add more fields displayed to cards on board .

It's available now on Atlassian marketplace, you can try for free. We're always open for feedback and suggestions, feel free to contact us via

Thank you,


Thanks you all for this information.

Much appreciated.
