Remove filter results sorting?

J.M.Roth May 31, 2016

I have several filter results shown on my dashboard. By mistake I clicked on one of the column headings, now the gadget contents are sorted by that header. I don't want that (my filter has specific ORDER BY statements for that).

How do I remove the sort?

Do I really have to remove and re-add the filter results gadget??

Still, 2 years later.  C'mon Atlassian, let us unselect our sort on this otherwise useful gadget.

If you edit that filter in the Issue Navigator (aka the filter issues list), you should be able to take your existing filter, click Advanced, and then remove the ORDER BY statement that was added behind the scenes when you clicked the column header.  Save this filter and then your results on the dashboard shouldn't be affected by the auto-sorting.

I checked the issue navigator: the filter does not contain any additional ORDER BY statement after clicking the header. Removing the gadget (but leaving the filter) and then re-adding the gadget works. Just removing the column and adding it again to the gadget does not work. (This is JIRA 6.4)

Oh gotcha.  I think I misunderstood which column you were talking about (gadget column vs filter column)

How to manage many similar workflows?

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 ...
