Welcome to Atlassian Community!
Unfortunately, it's not possible to change the order that the Stories are displayed under an Epic in the Epic view screen.
We have a feature request opened to implement this functionality:
Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.
For now, you can create a board or a filter (On a dashboard gadget) to return the issues from a specific Epic in any order you want.
Let us know if this information helps and if you need more instructions to implement the workaround suggested.
Actually, you would need to set a parameter in a JQL filter to set the order of the child issues in the Epics and display it using the filter results gadget. Let me give you an example:
Let's suppose you want to display all issues under the Epic "test-1" ordered by the creation date. These would be the steps:
1 - Create the following JQL filter:
2 - Navigate to your dashboard and click to create a Filter Results gadget, adding the filter you created
Let me know if this information helps.
I use the Cloud version and it worked for me just recently. Probably it worth to mention that the tickets and the epic I have are in the same Jira project. Though if all the tickets of the epic are on the same board, I guess it should do the trick.
Filtering issues by epic in the backlog helps to see only the issues requiring re-arranging. Also, make sure you've rearranged all of them, including those that are in the backlog. Sometimes it requires using "send to the bottom of the backlog" and "send to the top of the backlog" functions to achieve the desired order.
Jenna, thank you, I see your point. I believe the accepted answer makes it clear that the feature is not implemented and a subject for further development.
The goal of my comments is to provide information about an alternative way to attain the desired. At the end of the day what's important is that one could get information properly presented by the tool helping teams to get aligned.
This is the number one complaint I have and get from product owners... You create a bunch of stories at the start of a new feature, and then there is no way to logically order them. Such a shame. I have voted, but doesn't seem to do much good... people have been asking for this foryears.
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 ...
