How to remove the 'everything else' swimlane?

We having fun setting up a cross-project Kanban board & configuring swimlanes, one thing we're running into is that it displays really slowly, this seems to be due to there being 2500 issues in the 'everything else' lane - you can't seem to exclude this lane from the display - any ideas?

Cheers

The swimlane will not appear unless there is something to show in it. So if you do not want it to appear you have two options:

  • You can change the base filter for the Rapid Board so that the issues that do not match one of the swimlanes do not appear in the board at all
  • You could change the 'work mode sub filter' for the Rapid Board so that the issues that do not match one of the swimlanes are filtered out and will not appear on the work mode (note that this will cause those issues to still affect the reports shown in Report mode)

Thanks,
Shaun

You are right, there is no option to remove it.

You might want to use filters to limit the number of issues that appear in addition to separating them using siwmlanes. Not quite a proper solution, I understand.
