Removing a swim lane from a Kanban board


Our team has just set up a Kanban board however there are a number of swim lanes we would either like to remove (though not permanently) or archive those swim lanes not relevant to the current sprint. Any suggestions?

Hi @Kulwant Lall ,

There is way to temporarily remove or archive a swim lane.

However, there is no need to do it as swim lanes which doesn't have any issue will not be visible on the board.

Hi @Kulwant Lall 

If you go to Board settings then select the Swimlanes tab. You can take a screenshot of the JQL that is being used for the swimlanes, then just click Delete to the right of each swimlane you want to get rid of. You can always recreate a swimlane by replicating the JQL from your screenshot.
