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?

Nic Brough Community Leader Jan 31, 2017

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?

 

Hi @Nic Brough ,

I have requirement and need you help.  

 

We have a sprint board and we have stories and Subtask for those one. Lets says if have a stories DDD and Subtask below it are 1- Subtask1 , 2 -Subtask 2  etc.

 

When Dev team work on it, only Subtask move from one Column to another one, but not the stories

Columns are collections of issues by status.  So move your issues from one column to another by moving them through the wrorkflow.

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
