How potentially invasive is the Kanban plug-in?

I would like to add the Kanban board to our Jira instance, but before I do that I would like to know if adding the board will seem invasive to the projects other than the ones with which I am associated.

Custom fields and other unanticipated additions/plugins have been added in the past that showed up, unwanted, in our projects. I had to dig deeply to "remove" our projects from the "global" application of the new field/functionality.

If I add the Kanban board for our projects, will it litter other projects? Or will the addition of the board be benign to other projects?

Thank you much in advance.

1. If you installed jira agile - you've already impacted all projects - the plugin creates a set of custom fields and associates them to all default locations.

2. Creation of board does nothing - it just uses those fields / default jira possibilities and shows you nice view.

3. If you want to encapsulate your projects in further - be sure you are using separate schemes for them and do not use the default ones.

There are 7 schemes in jira that can be customized - so if you want total separation - have those schemas created for each project / group of projects.

Thank you so much, Alexey. I tried to follow the "Accept Answer" link provided in your email answer and received a HTTP 405 error page.

Your answers are what I had hoped. Now I have one more question.

Once the Kanban board is installed, can it be uninstalled?

You are not installing kanban board - you are creating it. And after it is created - it can be deleted instantly.

If you are talking about jira agile plugin - you can uninstall it through UPM. Please note that there would be a set of data left inside your system, but it will not be visible to anyone.
