We are eager users of jira agile, and its started to bug us a bit that we have to look at the priority field, since the backlog is meant to be prioritised. So im curious to hear if anyone know if its possible to hide the field, since its quite misleading :D
As I uderstand it is not possible (without changing code).
I hope that you will find some adtional information on links with similar questions (and answers):
One a side note, "priority" is the priority for the customer or the person raising the ticket. It is not the same priority for the engineering team. A Blocker in one project might be equivalent to a Major in another.
Developers will then prioritize/rank those stories relatively. Above "priority" will be one factor during ranking but not the only factor.
We use the rank to define the order things should be done in, and priority might be used for that but of course dependencies of resources, other issues etc are also part of it. but since priority have no purpose for us after it has been ranked, since a blocker shouldent stay in the bottom of the backlog, then it would just be handy to get a bit more space for the title of an issue over a field that for us dont provide any value.
