How can I edit a task in Kanban Board?

Hi,

I have recently set up a kanban board. I created a task within it but I dont see any 'Edit' button. This is a default button with Agile board. Seems like it is not with Kanban board. But there should be some way to edit it. I have Epics, story, bug and task. I cannot edit any of them once created. Any one had similar issue?

thank you,

Astha

Several different ways to edit an issue while in a Kanban board:

  • Use the ... menu in the details panel and choose Edit
  • Use the "e" keyboard shortcut
  • Use the "." keyboard shortcut and choose Edit
  • Click on the issue key in the details panel to open the detailed view, then choose Edit

If the Edit button is nowhere to be found and you really can't edit the issue by any of these methods, that means you don't have Edit permissions on that issue, or that it's in a read-only status like "Done" is in the default workflow.

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for the prompt reply. It was a permission issue. Thank you.
