Rank Epics by priority in Epic Swinlane (Kanban)

I was wondering if it's possible to rank Epics, in a swinlane on a Kanban board? For example, the Highest Priority Epics, should be displayed above Medium. This filter is used Filter Queryproject = MYPROJECT BY Rank ASC, but the Epics are not listed by Priority

Hi Mike,

The answer is partially in your question. As you correctly state, the filter of your board is ordered BY RANK. So not by priority.

So if you make sure you rank your epics (you could do this in backlog view of a scrum board or set up a kanban board with just your epics) by dragging them in the desired order, they will be shown in the correct order as swimlanes.

So how do I set up a kanban board with just my epics.?  I do not see how to do that anywhere.  Everything just points to looking at the epics in a the Epic list panel.

I had the same issue -- thanks Walter for pointing the direction.   For "dmewes", here is what I did to solve that problem.   

  1. Write a query like the following "project = <projectname> AND issuetype = "Epic" AND <any other query params to get you just the Epics you wish to rank>
  2. Save the query as a filter
  3. Create a Kanban board based on the saved query from step 2.   You should see just Epics.    This board would only be used for ranking via drag & drop.
  4. Go to your original Kanban board to see the Epics listed in the same order.
