Board - swimlane per each story

Hi Folks,

I'd like to configure my sprint board as per screenshot below:


I'd like to have my tasks grouped by their parents (PBI's / stories). I'd also like to have additional section (swimlane / row) for the tasks which don't have a parent (story).

In addition, I wonder if this could be possible that if I move (drag & drop) a given task from one parent to another (so I change task's swimlane / row), the task's parent changes accordingly. Especially an unparented task obtains a parent or vice-versa - a task might be disconnected from a parent (story) once moved to the "Unparented" row. 

For those of you who are familiar with Azure DevOps - this is basically what I'm trying to achieve in Jira, as I find it most suitable for my current project.

Could you please help me out how to configure that. Or perhaps there's some other philosophy in Jira that let's the team follow the similar approach?

Many thanks!

Hey @Marek Kortylewicz 
If you have a company managed project you can set the swimlanes as you described by going into board settings[... in the upper right part of the board view]> swimlanes

You can set top the swimlanes to be based on epics, then an any unassigned to any epic tasks will end up in the last swimlane.

One thing that will not be possible is the drag&drop - to change the swim lane you will have to change the epic assignment on the issue detail view. 

Thanks @Marta Woźniak-Semeniuk

I'll give it a shot. 

Cheers, Marek

Sure, if you need any more help - let me know :)
