ordering null value


When I have null values it is always considered as highest values.

1. When I order in ASC, null values are at the end
2.  When I order in DESC, null values are at the begin

Is there a way that JIRA consider null values the lowest to be able to put in in the correct order?

thanks for your help

In JQL NULL=Empty like. Base on your situation you cannot make a sorting ASC or DESC base on a Empty field. You need to find another field that may help you and them sort the issues.

Thanks Cristian. I decided to set a default value (0) versus empty one

You're welcome Carolina
