I have one User Experience team operating in Kanban working in Jira Project X, which supports multiple Scrum teams working in Jira Project Y.
How can we link and share work items across the Kanban and Scrum Teams?
Epics are available, but the Jira Admins have not enabled Initiatives
Hi @Lee Street
Jira has a built-in feature for issue links that you could use to make visible such connections. Please look here for more information on that feature: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/link-an-issue/
What do you mean by "share work"? If these are two different teams, using different work management methods (Kanban and Scrum) I would not expect the same work items to be on both team's boards. I could see different pieces of supporting work for each team being on their boards.
If instead you mean something like a read-only visibility board of all shared work, you could create one of those as a separate Kanban board using a JQL filter that spans both projects.
Thanks for your response. As in 'Shared", I mean a common Epic, in which different teams have different work items to complete to achieve the common goal (Epic) and both have visibility to each other's work?
I think id had issues connecting dependencies between a Kanban and Scrum Team? Are there limitations with different approaches in Jira?
Thanks again for your time on this
Thanks for explaining, Lee.
For teams to see each others' work you have a couple of options I can think of:
project IN (ProjectX, ProjectY) AND Key IN (epic1Key, epic2Key, etc.) OR "Epic Link" IN (epic1Key, epic2Key, etc.)
