Can we link issues/user stories on two Kanban boards?


I want to have two Kanban boards for the same project, one with user stories project wise and another Kanban board for a department having user stories from that project only relevant to that department so if a person from that department is done with a user story and they move it to done, it should move to done on both the boards.

Hi @Shahkar Ahmad 

What problem are you trying to solve?  It seems like you want both project and team-level views of progress.  Is that correct?

Perhaps if you show the workflow  (status values and columns) on the two boards to clarify the situation.

As noted by @Kris G _Alacriz_ above... In one project with multiple Kanban boards and different filters, issues will appear based upon the filters and the mapping of status values to the columns.  So if the status/columns are the aligned you can see the work on both boards.

Best regards,


Hi @Shahkar Ahmad -

Issues cannot be moved from board to board as board is only a view for issues. It is not a container of issues, it only views them based on a criteria(filter). 

That means you'll need to adjust the filters defining the boards so that an issue only moves based on the criteria defined. Ensure that the criteria is accurately defined with adjustments, if necessary.

I hope that helps.


What I want to achieve is to create user stories with the same description in two projects and link them in a way that if I move one of the user stories across swimlanes in a project, the other user story in another project gets moved too to the same swimlane.

Can you please clarify how many projects you have ? Are they Jira projects ? If yes, user stories cannot be made to move by linking if they belong to different boards in different Jira projects. 

If it were one single Jira project, user stories do move identically if they satisfy the filter criteria of two different boards. 

I hope that helps. If I am missing something, please elaborate.
