Hi - all our NG projects don't allow reordering of backlog items anymore -but the Classics do. Whenever I drag an item to a new position, it snaps back. This is consistent across browsers, projects and device platforms.
I can use the "Send to top of backlog" function, but no drag/drop.
Has something generic changed in permissions recently?
Any help is appreciated
Sorry to hear about this problem. We are tracking a very similar ranking bug in next-gen projects over in JSWCLOUD-17654. But I am not 100% this is exactly the same bug.

Hi Andy - thanks for the reply, however, this is a different problem.
No users (even admins) can drag and drop item, in Next-Gen backlogs. This works fine in Classic projects and has worked until recently in Newxt-Gen too.

Best regard Christian

Please tell me that this is fixed, and that JIRA models how the world works. Please....
