We tried to "emulate" that feature using a Scrum board (which has a backlog feature). We used the following model:
Eventually, after 6 or 7 weeks, we changed the model to 4-weeks-sprints on a scrum board. The emulation (at least the model described above) didn't feel handy.
Hasn't Kanban backlog been added to the server version yet?
If not, when is it planned to be launched?
Unfortunately, my company has changed the cloud version of JIRA to the server version, and we were using Kanban backlog feature, but with this transition this functionality seems to be lost for us. Of course this can be done manually, by filtering the needed Issues (with some components in our case) on a status which kept the Issues in the kanban backlog on the cloud version. But this isn't quite satisfying, unfortunately.
thanks for the nice hacky recommendation—tried that but didn't notice any changes in the board column conf screen. Is there anything else needed, e.g. server restart? Also, we are currently stuck on 7.1.x, is this only supposed to work on 7.3.x?
Many thanks in advance for any thoughts/comments
Just wanted to make sure you're aware that Kanban backlog is available in JIRA Server since version 7.4.
In the upcoming release of JIRA 7.5 we're going to extend the Kanban backlog functionality to support Versions and Epics panels.
Now you have yet another reason to start planning your next upgrade already now :).
Let me know if you have any questions.
I had the same problem as Paul after upgrading from Jira 7.2.1 to Jira 7.7.1:
The Kanban Backlog Panel was not visible in the Columns section of the board configuration.
I checked the Dark Features System Administration Page and I deleted a feature called something like com.atlassian.jira.agile.darkfeature.kanplan.epics.and.versions (I dont remember the exact naming, as I already have deleted it, but the kanban ranking was still missing)
I then added the feature
The kanban ranking is now enabled, and I can drag my status into the backlog and activate it, however the epics and versions filters are missing.
My best guess is that the required new "kanplan.epics.and.versions" darkfeature is misspelled and therefore nothing is active by default?
Any suggestions on how to get the epics and versions available too?
