I'm using the filter : project = "pwc" AND status = open Order By assignee

 

But it does not order by assignee name

that filter order the issues according to the assignee users name i think.

if you need to order by the assignee real name i think that you need a plugin

I fine with ordering by usernames. But order by doesn't seem to work .. Filtering using the above filter doesn't change order by usernames

did you try with a reindex? are you using cloud or server?

It should not matter in this case, and a reindex is unlikely to change anything. The system assignee field has a searcher hardcoded for it. The indexing is done on the user id (jsmith) not the username (John Smith) I believe

./jira-project/jira-components/jira-core/src/main/java/com/atlassian/jira/issue/fields/AssigneeSystemField.java

and parent classes

In spite of using "ordered" by assignee you can use this

project = "XYZ" AND status = open AND assignee in("assignee username") order by created/updated DESC/ASC

This works for me.

created/updated and DESC/ASC are your options

Try this smile

project = "XYZ" AND status = open AND reporter in("User name") order by assignee ASC/DESC

Tried this

 

project = "ABC" and status !=Closed ORDER BY assignee DESC

 

this doesn't order .. the list remains the same

You need to mention your assignee list also.

Try this...

Project = "XYZ" AND assignee in("A, B, C") AND status !=Closed ORDER BY assignee DESC

It will give you the tickets as per the assignee name in alphabetical descending order
