Removing everything else swim lanes from kanban board


In one of our Kanban rapid boards, we have used queries to populate the swim lanes. However, at the bottom there is a default swim lane - Everything else which returns everything that the queries did not return above.

Is it possible to remove this default swim lanes - Everything else?

Hi Rahul,

You will have to set up your board query to be the sum of all your swimlane queries to make sure no other issues are matched by it. If all issues show up in one of the previous swimlanes then the Everything else swimlane should disappear.

Fastest (but slowest) approach would be to simply define the board query as (swimlane 1 jql) OR (swimlane 2 jql) OR (swimalne ... jql). I would recommend to simplify this query once you got it working though.


Thanks worked..
