I've just discovered that Jira Work Management does not have Jira Software Boards, Which effectively means we need to migrate to Jira Software or other software that has normal boards.
But may be it is in backlog and will be shipped in near future and we don't need to migrate?
Hi Michaela - welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Jira Work Management is not Jira Software, so no, you would not expect it to have "software boards". JWM has it's own built in board.
Not sure if they plan to introduce those or not.
However, you CAN create a "software board" - it's really just a Kanban board, and use a filter that retrieves issues from teh JWM project. You just won't be able to put the JWM project name in the Location field for the board. You can use your personal profile, or another software project name.
But you don't need to migrate if you just want swimlanes.
You are very welcome! If this answered your question, can you click on the Accept Answer above to close this one out? Thanks!
Thank you for reaching out! I’m Jane, one of the Product Managers on the Jira Work Management team.
We’re currently testing out a new grouping concept on the board that's quite different from swimlanes. If you’re interested in being involved, feel free to book in some time in my calendar here: https://calendly.com/jyeoh/45min . We’d love to run through with you some designs and prototype that could help improve the way work is organised in your business boards.
Looking forward to hearing back,
