Jira Agile / JQL: Select all project and swimlanes by (all) user


is possible (JQL) to select all Projects for a Kanban board.

project = * does not work, is not allowed.

I can only create endless lists like

project in ("Sample Kanban Project", "auto 2016", "Beta") ORDER BY Rank ASC

Currently, I am unable to select all available projects (Wildcards?) and creates swimlanes for al all users.

Is there any option.

Thank you.

Thank you.


works fine. I thought I have to select all projects (usind a Wild card).


Hi Ander

If you want to order by rank all the issues in all projects, you just need to search for: ORDER BY Rank ASC

If you want to order in a specific board, you need to use the project in ("xxx","yyy") because one board in Agile can be related to one project or more.

Hope it helps,

Ricardo Carracedo.
