Query for priority and label in kanban swimlanes

I'm trying to set up swimlanes on a kanban with the following queries:

Fast Track: priority = "High " ORDER BY createdDate

Pull Next: (priority = "Medium " OR priority = Low) ORDER BY createdDate

Backlog: (priority = "High " OR priority = "Medium " OR priority = Low) AND labels = backlog

HOLD: (priority = "High " OR priority = "Medium " OR priority = Low) AND labels = hold

The Backlog and HOLD swimlanes are not showing. Can you help me structure my query so that issues labeled with "backlog" or "hold" adhere to their respective swimlanes?

Hi John,

I managed to get it to work with the following queries:

Fast Track: priority = "High " AND labels not in (backlog, hold) OR labels is EMPTY

Pull Next: priority in ("Medium ", Low) AND labels not in ('backlog', 'hold') OR labels is EMPTY

Backlog: labels = backlog

Hold: labels = hold

Thanks!

I think you should change the priority statements.

If I understand correctly, for Backlog, you're looking to include any issues labeled "backlog," and has a priority level of either High, Medium, or Low. If that's the case, this query would probably work better:

priority in ("High", "Medium", "Low") AND labels = backlog

Please reply back and let me know if it worked.
