Row/Swimlane WIP Constraints

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring Columns

I have an expedite swim-lane, and do not want the column WIP constraint to apply to these expedite items. Therefore - want to set a row constraint for the expedite lane. Is this possible?

Hi Karl,

It's indeed an important feature to have WIP for swimlanes, but currently it isn't possible, please vote here - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSW-3681 and see the comments as well.

One of the comments "Please provide this issue at your earliest convenience. We absolutely need it provide WIP limit for Expedite swimlanes."

I didn't see a "vote" button on that issue.

We just started using a Kanban board thinking we could start with the very basic scenario of an Expedite swimlane that with no WIP limit and a Other swimlane that we could set a WIP limit on.  That seems like an essential (must-have) requirement for a Kanban board to be able to support different WIP limits based on the swimlane.

Found the "vote button and voted.
