How to group stories under epics in a Kanban Board? Edited

How does one order the issues in a Kanban Board column so that the Epic-Story hierarchy is respected?

i.e.:

Epic 1

- Story 1a (Epic Link - Epic 1)

- Story 1b (Epic Link - Epic 1)

Epic 2

- Story 2a (Epic Link - Epic 2)

etc.?

 

TIA

Hello,

You should go to the Board cofiguration then go to Swimlines and in the "Base Swimlanes on" field choose Epics 

Thanks for that - good answer, but we already have our swimlanes based on queries - we use labels to split work into one of four sub-categories that the team handle.   Is there a way to do this grouping within the lanes?

Thanks

No, you can not group within swimlanes unfortunately.

OK - we'll have to manage!  Thanks for your responses - appreciated.
