Our company is new to JIRA and I'm managing admin related work for our users. I received a request today to add custom swimlanes to Kanban board and I'm stuck at writing appropriate query to add swimlanes. I need to add 6 swimlanes.
Could someone please advise.
OK. So what are "Training", "POC", "Projects", "ETL", "Reports/Dashboards" and "Infrastructure" in the context of your project?
Are they Issue Types?
Or perhaps you're using Components to achieve this categorisation?
Or some other construct, like a custom JIRA field?
We'll need to know this to provide assistance with the JQL for your swimlanes.
In order to have them appear in a swimlane, you'll need some method of categorisation so that you can write the appropriate JQL.
I imagine the users are thinking that you create the swimlanes and then they can just "drag and drop" the tickets in to categorise them, but that's not how it works.
The easiest solution for you is probably just to set the categories up as Components in your project and then configure your board to have a swimlane for each one e.g.
Name Training JQL component = "Training" Description Training
Name POC JQL component = "POC" Description Proof-of-concept
Remember to leave the "Everything else" swimlane to capture all other issues (that haven't been categorised).
You're welcome, Madhurima.
I'm sure you'll find that there are lots of people in the Atlassian community that will be able to help you out when you need it.
If you are going to be doing a lot of JIRA Admin work then I'd recommend taking the official JIRA Administration training courses, which are available in the Atlassian University area of their website.
Their online documentation is also quite comprehensive.
