Automatic rank to top ?

Could it be possible to setup, for instance, a post function that would rank the issues to top in an agile board ? I am looking for a way to rank to top an Issue than is transitioning in another status (column).

Hi Philippe,


Yes, it's possible using JJupin Agile plugin. You will have to write a SIL script post function to do that. Don't worry, it's that simple:

rankFirst(key); // key is a predefined variable holding the issue key

Here is the documentation for the rankFirst routine(and the rest of the goodies):


You can decide which issues should be ranked first. Let's assume you want to move first only the bug tickets. Here it is:

if (issueType == "Bug") { // yep, this is also predefined



Best regards,


Thank you so much Silviu! You saved my life laugh
