Continuous delivery starts on the Jira kanban board
Kanban is a common framework for agile and DevOps software development that provides transparency of work and team capacity. Kanban boards in Jira Software help teams visualize their workflow, limit work-in-progress, and maximize efficiency.
Work in progress (WIP) limits
WIP limits are critical for exposing bottlenecks in the workflow and maximizing flow. WIP limits are the maximum number of issues that can be in one column or step a workflow at any given time. When the column is “maxed-out”, the team needs to swarm on those issues and move them forward before new issues can move into that stage of the workflow.
Another hallmark of the kanban board are the columns that represent a specific activity that together compose a “workflow”. Cards flow through the workflow until completion. Workflows can be as simple as “to do,” “in progress,” “done,” or much more complex.
A swimlane is a way of categorizing issues on the Jira kanban board so that agile teams can easily see issues grouped by different criteria, such as by a user or by issue type.
