Can I search or sort Issues by Issue Type?

Is there a way to either search or sort issues by Issue Type? That seems like the most basic of features, but I can't figure out a way or find any information on it anywhere. I am trying to troubleshoot problems with epics not showing up and would like to be able to view all of the epic together.

Hi Laura,

  1. Go to the Issue Navigator (under the Issues-tab and select Search for Issues)
  2. Select the field Type in the dropdown list in you filter. This should open up a select list of all issuetypes in you instance (if you have selected a project as well the list will be limited to the issue types defined in the project)
  3. Select Epic and then hit Search
  4. You can also do this in Advanced mode with a piece of JQL
    issuetype = Epic

I hope this helped!

Kind regards,

// Svante

as an addition:

to sort your issues just click the column header for the search item you want to sort by if you are using basic mode.

In advanced mode (JQL) you add ORDER BY at the end of your JQL statement

E.g. status = New ORDER BY issuetype ASC

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching for more details in JQL searching. It is a great page!

thanks for the reply and the link very well understood

Thank you! Indeed, I was in Advanced mode and didn't realize it. Feeling silly, but glad it was an easy solution!

You should accept Svante's answer!

I created a filter to do this, but can I apply it to my sprint to make it sort by epic link alphabetically?
