Sort order for tickets on a filter based board



our team is involved in more than one (Jira) project. To have a separate view I labeled our tasks in every project and created a filter to select these tasks ((project A or project B ) AND labels="teamlabel" ). Then I created a Kanban board based on this filter. This works fine, but I didn't find a way to change the sort order of items in backlog of the new board. I can't change it by drag and drop in the new board or in the project board. Is there way to sort items in a flexible way (easy changeable)?

Thank you!

Hello @Stefan Kuehne 

When you say

". I can't change it by drag and drop in the new board"

Have you added Ranking to the issue filter ?

In the filter you can add "Order by Rank "

I can't use this term, it seems Jira doesn't know "Rank".

Error message:

Not able to sort using field 'Rank'.

I will try to add Rank to the board...

Thanks a lot. Problem solved.

To solve the issue, I had to open the board -> Configure (Drop down "Board") -> "Add Rank"

This changed the sort order and I can Drag & Drop tasks in the order I need :-)
