Configure swimlanes by fixVersion without manual queries

Esther Strom Community Leader May 31, 2019

We're looking to swimlane our kanban board by fixVersion. I don't want to have to manually create a swimlane for each version, because we have over a dozen projects and it gets crazy to maintain something like that.

Is there any way to extend the options in the Base Swimlanes On dropdown to include other fields like fixVersion, so that a lane will automatically be created for all fixVersions that have tickets assigned to them? I'm open to plugins if there's one available that would extend that.

Hi @Esther Strom and welcome to the community!

There is no built-in answer for your question...yet.  Here is a link to the same question asked by others, and they provide some links to suggestions you can vote for as additions to Jira


Best regards,

Thanks; I had seen that question already, and am already following the open issues in Atlassian's Jira. I was just hoping that someone had found a way around it.


Thanks for the welcome :) I'm not actually new; I just switched to a new account. I've been around for a few years.

Hi @Esther Strom

The best way around this is by adding swimlanes by query like below:

No release: fixVersion is EMPTY
Next release: fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersion()
Unreleased: fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() AND fixVersion != earliestUnreleasedVersion()
Last released: fixVersion = latestReleasedVersion()
Released: fixVersion in releasedVersion() AND fixVersion != latestReleasedVersion()

Good ideas, @Remi Arts   We use similar quick filters for those rather than swimlanes to raise visibility and improve focus.
