Hi @SuperGreen -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Are you using a company-managed project?  And if so, do you mean you set the Maximum Constraint (in Board Settings >> Columns) to 10 items?

If so, the constraint values are for min/max WIP limit visibility and do not limit the number of items in a column.

If you wish to limit the number of items in the done column for a Kanban board you may adjust one or both of these under Board Settings >> General

  • Hide completed issues older than
  • Kanban board sub-filter.  This one applies an additional filter for what is shown on the board.  It does not impact the reporting, which is managed by the primary board filter.

Kind regards,

Hi Bill, 

Thank you for your answer and help.  It is a Company Managed version and I did as you mentioned and limited the time/duration a completed ticket can stay on the board (1 week).  This works great!
