How to change a board from scrum to kanban ?

Hey, with this new version I don't know how to change or get a new kanban board instead of Scrum. Do I have to create a new project ?

Hi @Thomas Lanzoni ,

Boards are based on filters, so it is easiest just to create a new Scrum board based on the same filter used for the Kanban board.


No, you do not need to create a new project.  A board (Kanban or Scrum) is just a view of the data in one or more Jira projects, based on a filter query. 

You can create a new Kanban based on your project, or you can first create a filter to just show the issues/issue types you want to show on the board, then create a Kanban board based on that saved filter.

If you want to you could then delete your Scrum board.  No board creation or deletion has any affect on the project.
