I've a question - While moving tickets from one column to another, For e.g moving a ticket from in progress to QA, can I check if certain fields are updated or not?
I want to enforce a condition when moving tickets from in development to QA, the developers need to update "Fix versions" field.?
Is there anyway I can write custom check or queries in Jira so that the tickets are not moved unless they update "fix versions" field?
I just edited your question (title and first paragraph) because it made no sense, and I am hoping that you can get a more useful answer by explaining the problem in "JIRA speak". Columns and Swimlanes are very different things. I think you have a good question here, but have not been clear on how you are using columns and swimlanes.
A column is a selection of issues based on their status. Status is an indicator of where an issue is in the workflow. The workflow is a project setting.
A workflow is a collection of status, and a set of transitions that join them together, so that people can move issues from one status to another.
If you want to stop transitions happening, you need to place conditions on them. Or, if you want to check that the data going into issues is valid, use validators to check thm.
So, edit the workflow and put the relevant conditions or validators on the transitions.
