Edit the task that needs to move, changing the data such that

  1. It stops matching the selection rule for the swimlane that it is in now
  2. It starts matching the selection rule for the swimlane you want it in

Hi Nic, is it possible to move tasks between swimlane by using drag and drop?

No, because a swimlane is a grouping selected by data on the issues, and there's no way JIRA can know what moving between swimlanes might be doing in most cases.  It's ok for the clear simple standard ones (e.g. change the story or assignee it belongs to), but as soon as any clever filters are used, you need rules which can't be fixed.

Think of a simple example of two swimlanes - one is "priority = high" and the other "colour = blue".  What do you need to change and what should you change if a user moves an issue from one lane to the other?
