How to share a Userstory between two teams? Edited

Imagine that there is a user story-1.

There is a UI team A and Backend team B. 

User story-1 has a total of six tasks (3 in UI and the other 3 in the backend)

How will I make sure that the same story collaborated between A and B. dependent tasks and velocity of the story, etc.?

Hi @Meher Chaitanya 

This goes against what Scrum / Kanban suggest i.e. a team should be able to do all the required work, which is why you're up against this issue. Ideally you should be combining the teams or have each team made up of some UI and some backend people.

Assuming that you're not going to change the teams, are all stories like that with some UI and some backend subtasks? You can add a component or label to each subtask which differentiates which team it belongs to, then add a swimlane for each team or quick filters for each team.

Essentially I think you'll find that the teams are effectively working as one team, otherwise you're not going to achieve your goals.

Yes, I agree with the theory of Scrum/ Kanban. I have learned it that way. But, Unfortunately, we follow a different way of doing things. 

I learned, form your comments that there is no direct implied scheme in JIRA for doing things in our way. It's fine.


Thanks for answering my question.
