My JQL Filter for the Board:
Project = XX or issuetype = YY ORDER BY Rank ASC
If I configure the Board to Base Swimlanes on Epics, then it will show only the Issues that belong to Project XX or that do not have Epics. All the issues that have IssueType = YY that have an Epic, will not be displayed.
If I configure the Board to Based Swimlanes on No Swimlanes, then all the issues are displayed as in the filter.
Is there anything that I am doing wrong? Are there any restrictions for boards on Epics and Multiple projects that I am not aware of?
I ran into this too. My solution was to edit the filter as follows:
Project = XX or (issuetype IN YY, Epic) ORDER BY Rank ASC
When using Epics for Swimlanes, it is necessary for the Epic to be included in the filter for issues in that Epic to show. No Swimlane is shown for Epics that do not contain issues in project XX or issue type YY.
I believe I am having same issue. This is the scenario:
Epic X is created in project A
Task B is created in project B and is assigned to Epic X
Inside project B I group by epic.
Epics from project B show up, but tickets from Epic X are completely filtered out. They are just gone. They are not a part of any of the epics in project B and they do not fall into "issues without epics".
i would expect to see a swimlane per Epic defined in XX (if any) and any other project that has an issuetype of YY associated to an Epic. Then at the bottom under Everything Else would be all issues that don't belong to an Epic. can you provide a screen shot and more details about the Epics you have and would expect to see?
Thanks for the reply @Jack. I am viewing a Kanban board that I created and set the swimlanes to be based on epics. As you can see in the first screenshot, there are only a select few tasks... but in the last screenshot the number of issues that actually should be displaying is very different, there are many more. Why aren't all of these issues showing on the board?
There are two things here.
First you say you want to set swimlanes to epics but currently your board does not appear to be setup that way? Go to Board settings > Swimlanes and choose Epics.
Second, regarding few issues being displayed, it is because some issues are being filtered out by the sub-filter. Per the sub-filter, any "Done" issue that was last updated more than 7 days ago will not show. If that doesn't in-and-of-itself account for the delta check your quick filters.
