Items in the drop-down list are not alphabetically ordered


When adding the two dimensional filter statistics gadget to a dashboard the options in the XAxis or the YAxis dropdown menus are not ordered alphabetically.  Is there any setting to force the order to be alphabetical?  I've seen this behavior in other lists where the items are also JIRA fields. Thanks!

Hi Carlos,

Sorry to report there does not appear to be a way to change the order of those items at this time.  However I agree with you, it would be helpful to order these alphabetically.  There is an existing feature request to do this over in

I would recommend watching and voting on that feature request.


Thanks Andrew.  I voted on the issue and started watching as well. In my opinion, implementing this behavior would be very helpful (I heard others complaining too! ;-))
