How can I limit WIP in Jira ?

Hi ,

 

I would like to limit wip on below level :

  • #of stories team can work on specific scrum board (= team board)
  • #of epics product (project) can work on "Un Release" version

 

I familiar with columns constrains I can use in Active Sprint board , I am looking for wip that can really limit and not allow the team to work on more than X stories in parallel / product to work on more that Y Epics in parallel

 

Will be happy to get advice ,

Hi Ofira,

I don't think you can truly enforce the WIP limits with JIRA (but you may be able to use an add-on). I believe this other post tackles the scenario you're proposing: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Can-JIRA-quot-truly-quot-enforce-WIP-on-a-kanban-board/qaq-p/416395

Hope it helps,

Carlos
