Is Issue Count the only statistics that can be set for column constraint on Rapid Board?

When setting column constaints, I only find Issue Count as an option. Can we add other statistics (e.g. story points) and use it to set column constraints?

Sadly, it seems as though there's not a way to use anything but "issue count" as the constraint. I found this enhancement (please vote for it if this is something you care about!): https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-4010

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm interested in using size-based constraints (from a custom field) but I can't see any option to configure that.

If you have Jira 6.0.5 or newer you should be able to use the Estimation tab in the Configuration panel to select constraint values other than issue count. For example you could select "Business Value" and set the contraints to be min and max of the sum of estimated Business Value...

It looks like the config on the Estimation tab is for estimation only. For column constraint, I am still seeing Issue Count as the only option (other than None).

Sorry guys for the mis-direct. It turns out I was confusing the scrum board with Kanban. There are two JIRA tickets open for this topic. Please vote on them to help raise this issue.
