Sorting issues under epic by Automation

Can we use use jira automation to sort issues and arrange in serial manner under an epic.

Generally we used to do in backlog epic panel view, is there any chance can we do it using by jira automaion??


Any thoughts please...

I'm not aware of any option to sort Epics in the panel of the Backlog view (regardless of Automation).

Automation might help you set a field that you could sort by, but Automation is unrelated to any view of issues (Epic panel, Backlog view, Sprint view, Issue search results, etc).

Some other options for sorting your Epics:

  • On a Sprint or Kanban board, specify a filter that includes Epics and sorts as desired.
  • Create and save a Filter which sorts Epics as desired. You can even put a hyperlink to that filter in the left sidebar of Jira for the project as a Shortcut, to make it easy to access.
  • Use the JQL macro in Confluence to list your Epics and sort as desired.

I can't think of how you could do this via automation, where it wouldn't be more complicated than doing it manually.

The order a team would like to sort the stories for any given Epic feels like something that is squarely in the curate basket, not the automate one.
