Base swimlanes on stories


I'm trying to use "Base Swimlanes on Stories".

I thought this would show the board (Active Sprint) as Issues and the sub-tasks under it.





No subtasks



But the board is showing exactly same as "no swimlane" option.


Pease help.

Nestaa - can you please post a screenshot of your configuration and what your board looks like now?

JIRA.pngBoard Configuration:




Nestaa - as Nicolas already suggested and as far as I can see from the Screenshot you don't have any subtasks on the board so far. Either your bugs and stories don't have any subtasks or they are not included in your board filter. Have you already created some subtasks for the bugs and stories on the board? 



Hi Christoph,

Thank you for your time.

We do have sub-tasks.Attaching one of the issue with sub-task for your reference.

Even if my issues do not have sub-taks, shouldn't there be a swimlane which shows "Other Issues" and group all together? No?




You're welcome Nestaa - if all issues displayed on the board don't have subtasks then there would not be the swimlane other issues as it appears only if there is at least one story swimlane on the board. So can you please post a Screenshot of your board filter configuration (see general in the board configuration) here and the search result using this jql including at least one story with a subtask? 



Nestaa - please copy your board and create a filter with only project =ASOC. Then you should see the expected swimlanes. Afterwards you can work towards your original filter and find out what filters out all the subtasks of your board. Hope that helps? 



Hi Christoph,

Thank you, i'll try that out.



Your issues already have subtasks linked to it? With the swimlanes based on stories, the issues witout subtasks appear under a swimlane called "Other issues".


I do not see swimlane, irrespective of whether issue have task or not.

Like you said i was expecting it to create swimlane, but it did not.


By chance do the 'sub-tasks' have a differnet workflow (status)than the stories?

Perhaps you do not have the sub-task status' mapped to a column under the board Configuration?
