Is it possible to change value of the Rank field in a post function?

One of our customer wants to change the value of the GreenHopper Rank field when the issues get closed, i.e. from a post function of a workflow transition.

The Rank field has normally a relative value. So the question is whether it is possible to explicitely set this value from a post function or perhaps from an event listener?

Thank you,

Hi Tibor,

This is not possible today. The new Global Rank field will have the ability to update the rank of an issue via an API. You may wish to take a look at that.
