I have 2 filters
1) My Open Tasks
status not in (Closed) AND assignee in (currentUser()) ORDER BY priority DESC
2) My Open Tasks + Unassigned
status not in (Closed) AND assignee in (currentUser(), EMPTY) ORDER BY priority DESC
The first sorts by priority as expected. The second does not. I can't determine what it's sorted by but it's not priority. There are issues with priority of Highest in the middle of the list of results and Medium issues at the top. There are also "unassigned" issues before and after the Highest priority issues so it's not sorted by assignee either, which is the only difference between the two queries.
Am I missing something here or is this a bug?
Sorry, it should have said IS Empty. You can try that again.
status not in (Closed) AND (assignee = currentUser() or assignee is EMPTY) ORDER BY priority DESC
I wonder if it has something to do with the empty as related to assignee. You might try just this to see:
status not in (Closed) or assignee is EMPTY ORDER BY priority DESC
Ah it seems ordered by Project first, then Priority despite that not being part of the criteria. The first query did not return results from all projects so the Highest priority ones from one of the projects just ended up at the top.
So how do I force it to not order by Project first?
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
