Reorder the status on JIRA board


I am using JIRA cloud. I have multiple resolved status mapped to the Done column on JIRA board. 

For example, a User story can be moved to Archive or to Accepted from Testing. When i am trying to drag a story to Done, it shows To Archive and Accept Issue in the same sequence, but i want that Accept Issue should come on top and Archive should be sequenced second. 

Also check the screenshot.

Can you tell me how i can do that?Capture.PNG

Hi Ankita,

In my testing of this I tried to change the order directly in the board configuration, however this is not being honored.   I also thought perhaps I could follow the Advanced workflow configuration: Customize how transitions appear in order to change the order of the transition as it appears (using the opsbar-sequence property).  

However this only changes the way the transition appears on the issue detail view, it does not appear to have any effect on the order in which these status appear on the board itself.

Sorry there does not appear to be a clear work-around for this at this time, but it appears that this is actually a bug in both Jira Software Cloud and Server.  I would recommend watching the associated bug ticket for your platform.


Should this be fixed by a code change, or some other work-around become available to make this work, then I would expect those issues to be updated to reflect this.
