How to Create Issue on the board in a Company-Managed Kanban Project with a Query based Swimlanes

I am using a company-managed kanban kanban project.

"Create Issue" option appears as I hover over the first column of the board in an epic based swimlane view.

Surprisingly, this option is not valid for query based swimlanes. Is there someone who knows the solution or the reason? Thanks

I know I can click Create on the top menu and I know I can create on the backlog page.Screen Shot 2023-10-25 at 18.36.32.png

Hi @selcuk alimdar 

I was able to reproduce that same behavior as you did with JQL-based swim lanes.  And when other swim lane options are selected, the create option is available.

My hypothesis is that for all other options, the values of the issues fields can be exactly determined, and so when the create issue happens the fields can be set to place the new issue on the board correctly.

But with a JQL-based swim lane, an almost limitless set of criteria could be used.  It may not be possible to set the issue fields in a way to place the issue on the board.  For example, a JQL statement based on the created field might require creating the issue with a date in the past or future!

Kind regards,
