Show swimlanes for both stories and epics

Bas Prins I'm New Here Oct 28, 2020

Hi,

is there a way to show swimlanes for both epics and stories? I can only select one issue type in the dropdown. 

 

I tried "show swimlane based on JQL query" and used the following query:

type in (Epic, Story)

 

I guess that's not how the queries are intended to work. I guess they are designed to show 1 swimlane per query, not something that behaves dynamic.

 

Is there another way to achieve showing swimlanes for both stories and epics?

From my experience, it is not possible to do this for epic.

I have no trouble to use Query and use the query issuetype = Story, or issuetype = Task. But this does not work for epics.

Indeed, because Epics serve the purpose to gather multiple stories, showing them in Swimlanes does not seem as useful as showing Tasks and Stories in Swimlanes.

Hi Flavien,

 

Thanks for the quick response. 

Setting the "base swimlane on..." option works the same for stories as for epics. 

- When I set it to stories, all stories with their tasks are shown in a swimlane

- When I set it to epics, all epics with their children are shown in a swimlane

 

So I would still like to be able to base swimlanes on Stories OR epics. 

 

I guess based on queries will not work. It will just show me 1 swimlane per query, not a dynamic amount of swimlanes per query. 

 

So I want something which is simply not possible I guess
