I am wondering if it is possible to rank a swimlane on a Kanban board?
Our swimlanes are based on stories, but it does not look like you drag/drop the issues to rank them. Is there a way to enable ranking or should I be basing my swimlane on something else to have this functionality?
Thanks for the help!
You can not drag items between swimlanes. You can only stack-rank within a swimlane.
Since swimlanes a represented by queries, assignees, epics, or stories, you wouldn't ranking them at all. Rank is the relative rank of issues within a swimlane.
I am using JIRA 6.3.4 and I can drag issues between lanes in a Kanban board and also change their ordering.
I checked the configuration for the board and it says
Ranking Using Rank
which is the default. You can change this by editing the filter query, and for example change it to "ORDER BY issuekey ASC"
Nick! You are referring to dragging and dropping between COLUMNS, not LANES. Furthermore, ordering WITHIN a LANE always works if you are sorting by rank. The Question is asking about specifically the Story Swimlanes. It is not possible to drag and drop these lanes themselves! From my initial testing, it appears they are appearing in order of KEY. It is also not possible to drag and drop issues between ANY Swimlanes. Ranking can ONLY be achieved between a single swimlane!
