How can I view all swimlanes or assign a task to a Swimlane?

Allison Marotta Jun 28, 2016

I'm brand new to JIRA.  I created 2 additional swimlanes so now I have Expedite, General, Launch, and Everything else.  When I view the board, I only see the top 2 Swimlanes - Expedite and General. When I change the Expedite tasks to a lower priority, they get moved into General and I don't see Expedite anymore.

How do I assign a task to a specific swimlane? Do I have to have a rule set up for each one?

What JQL are you using for each Swimlane?

Off the top of my head, it sounds like you want to know the logic --

  • A card can only exist in one swimlane at a time
  • A card will match a queries top-down

Thanks for the answer.  After using it further, I think the queries is what was confusing me.  I organized by Stories and it's much easier for me (at least for now).

The Stories Swimlanes seems to be the most popular option from what I've seen.
