Can I use different workflows for story and sub task

Edited
Nova I'm New Here Dec 08, 2021

I want to track the progress of a story and it's sub tasks in a Kanban board. I created swim lanes where I have added story and subtask.

When I am closing all the subtask the story is closing on its' own.

Subtask need to show up in the Columns on Kanban board: To Do, In Progress, In Review, Dev Done. At this point I want to close all the subtasks. But I want the Story to stay open and follow the below columns:

Story need to show up in the Columns on Kanban board: To Do, In Progress, In Review, QA Ready, In Testing, UAT, Done - at this point I want to close my story.

Can we have two different workflows in Kanban board for the above approach

you can certainly have separate workflows. however, if your story is auto-closing once sub-tasks are done then this is not caused by default. you may have some automation rule or workflow post function doing this.

Hi @Nova ,

 

You can partially but they will share the board and columns. 

 

Essentially, you will have these columns in your Kanban board as a merge between the two workflows:

 

To do, In Progress, In review, Dev, QA Ready, In Testing , UAT, Done.

 

This will work with both workflows. This is same also with different issue types as well.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I want to use the story swim lane on Kannan board for the high level status.

 I am merging the statuses. When I am opening the swim lane by stories it is still showing all its subtasks also on the Kannan board which is looking very crowded.  
Is there a way that I can only see the stories in the status columns under stories swim lane?

I believe you can use quick filters to just show the issue type you want.

 

Just set your quick filters JQL as "issue type = story".
