You guys are right.
1. You can have one item on two boards. And if you rank Item1 has the first Rank in your Board, it will be the first Rank in your Structures, etc. Ridiculous.
2. If you do not ORDER BY Rank, you can have a manual field that acts as priority. Then you can sort, assuming numeric.
3. But you completely lose drag and drop in the board, structures, user story maps, etc. Which essentially brings the solution back to the early days of Windows.
1. It's nonsense to have an item that is ranked differently against other things just because you're looking at it differently.
3. Correct, because drag and drop (and other functions) must have a field to keep the order data in, and that field must be order-able (not just sortable, but order-able). Rank is the only field in Jira that is fully order-able.
Let me give you an example:
What is their order? Do not assume that the rule I am imagining is alphabetic or based on the order I have written them there - it is not.
