I need to setup a Kanban Board where I need to setup a WIP Limit for different items in the Workflow.
So for example, say I have 20 items of which 5 are Bugs, 10 are Major Enhancements and the remaining 5 are Minor Enhancements.
Can I set a WIP Limit on the "Ready for Dev" Status on the Kanban Board like below :
Bugs : 3
Minor Enhancements : 4
Major Enhancements : 1
I read somewhere that this is not possible in Jira. Can you confirm/clarify ?
Hi @Subramaniam Shastri - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
No, you won't be able to differentiate between the swimlanes with WIP limits - they are set for the entire column.
You could create separate boards for each of those and control your WIP Limits there and then have a master board with everything on it like you already have.
So you are saying build the issue constraints based on different issue types even though the UI in the Board does not have the ability to show it based on Issue types.
That way at least the triggers are being applied even though the Board UI may not necessarily reflect it in the way we want.
Is that right ?
Just copy the current board 3 times. Then change the filter for each board to look something like:
Project = ABC and issuetype = Bug
Project = ABC and issuetype = Major
Then change the WIP Limits for the appropriate columns. The board UI doesn't really change at all other than the WIP Limits.
