I have created the kanban board and when I create a new issue this issue will land first of all in the backlog. Could i somehow achieve to create issue and directly place the issue in the Kanban board?
Hi @Qing Zhang , issues appear in the Kanban based upon their status. So if you create an issue it first appears in the initial status, e.g. To Do, which typically is the Backlog status. You can either manually transition the issue into a status, e.g In Progress which would move it to the kanban board or you could consider automating to always transition new issues to In Progress. Though I doubt that is your goal here.
Hi @Qing Zhang ,
That could be done but you would need to use some scripting using one of the few add-ons that extends Jira.
In the hand, what is the point of having a Kanban board with Backlog to plan activities and not using it? Somehow at one point of time you/someone decided that was needed a backlog, and now you would like to define the exception? My recommendation here is then to switch off the backlog view and use the direct creation link to quickly create a new issue (https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/creating-issues-via-direct-html-links-159474.html). You could place the link on the project side bar, or even on the top, etc.
Hope it helps,
