Moving issues between swimlanes


I would like to know in a Kanban Board, without leaving it. If an issue can be moved across swimlanes.

Thanks in advance.

No.  A swimlane is essentially a filter, not a field, and you can build quite complex ones where JIRA would have no chance of knowing what a change of swimlane means to the data.

Thanks, was looking for clarification more than an answer since the documentation does not state that clearly.

Add special labels to this kind of Issue 

Then Edit the kanban Filter likes project = XXX and labels != xxx

Do you mean swimlanes or columns?

I mean swimlane ( a swimlane in an agile board is a row not a column ).
