I wanna maintain sprints in Kanban board or I wanna change statuses of Epics/bugs when moving it through swimlines. At the movement i can't do these things in JIRA boards.
Please let me know a solution for it?
Two questions in one!?
Sprints are part of the Scrum process. Kanban methodology doesn't use Sprints or any sort of iterative process. In a similar vein, in JIRA Software there is no way to plan Sprints on a Kanban board. However, you can point a Kanban board to a query such as
sprint = "It's over 9003" or
sprint = activeSprint(). Is there a reason the Scrum board doesn't work for you?
Swimlanes indicate explicit queries that show specific issues based on a criteria you choose. There's no way for JIRA to know how you'd want to update issues between lanes. What if someone had a query like
updated = 12h? Would it just change the updated date to 12 hours ago?
On the swimlanes one, another example I ran into yesterday - if you have two swimlanes to drag between:
How is JIRA supposed to know how to change the data? It's possible that it could be Acme + Anvil, and that's a valid combination of data, so it's already in both lanes (althoguh JIRA will hide it in the second one because it's already in the first). Or if it should change Acme, to get it out of the first lane, does it change or drop the Acme? Change to what? Even though it's unrelated to the component?

>In the kanban board it is changing the Epic or Bug Statuses when moving it across columns.
Correct, that's what Kanban boards are for. Columns are a collection of status (often only one status, but you can have many in a column). As the status are a known, fixed list, you know you can change them. Swimlanes are for displaying slices of data which can be unknown and contradictory, so there's no way to move between them.
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
