Show assignee on story swimlane

How can I configure my scrum board swimlane based to Stories to show the assigne icon on the story.  We assign a story to a single person and that person has responsibility over the entire story while subtasks can be assigned to other people.  The swimlane shows the story as the lane and the subtasks.  The subtasks show the assignee but the story just shows the story number and the status.  I want to be able to show who is assignee of the story without clicking on it.

It is not an option at the moment. Sounds like a good feature to have!

I just found this blog because I wanted to do exactly the same thing.  How can we get more votes for this feature?

yes!  upvoted, and linked to another request which is to show story points as well.  For me this is pretty much essential to make the sprint view actually useful!

 It would ideally be customizable to show whatever fields you want...similar to the card layout option. For me I'd like it to display the fix version.

Two years later this still isn't possible. That sucks.

7 years later and counting...

I was just Googling for a way to accomplish this and found this thread... I can't believe Atlassian can't implement such a simple request. In my opinion, this would bring a lot of value to the Scrum board.

We can't even use the Scrum board during standups for exactly this reason, we have to use the full Backlog view instead as it's the only place we can display who the tickets are actually assigned to, which obviously sucks because from the Backlog view you have no visibility of the progress of each story's subtasks which is the whole point of the standup.

It depends on how many people you have in your team but one way we are working around this request is by creating a Quick View for each team member. We then click through each team member and view their stories.
