Epic and Custom Query Swimlanes Together Edited


I'm trying to configure my agile board in a way where most swimlanes are based on Epics, but I need one Expedite lane. I'm trying this syntax below. The custom query for Expidite works, but it's ignoring the Epics. 


Base Swimlanes on "Queries".

  1. priority = "expidite" 
  2. issueType = Epic
  3. Everything Else

Why are Epics not populating? 

Note: when I select Base Swimlanes on "Epics", the Epics work nicely as swimlanes alone. I just need to add more custome lanes around them.

I'm learning it should be something like:

  1. priority = "expidite"
  2. issueType = Story  
  3. Everything Else

The second would have to be grouped by Epic, but I don't think this function is supported. Very unfortunate.
