Change sort order of Sub-Tasks in JIRA Agile Issue Detail View?

The JIRA Agile Issue Detail View displays Sub-Tasks in order by created date.  However, if you go to an Issue View screen these Sub-tasks can be sorted by priority/rank order.  Is there a way to configure the Issue Detail View in JIRA Agile to display Subtasks by priority/rank which would be more useful in a JIRA Agile context?

We suffer from this also, and would be very interested to know of a way to make the Detail view sort subtasks by rank.

I thought it bizarre that we couldn't re-order sub-tasks by drag and drop. I solved that with a 3rd party chrome plugin. But now I discover that sub-tasks appear in a different order in issue-detail, and on the board, than they do when viewing an issue... ridiculous.

Hi Shea, 


Did you get this resolved, i am having the same issue. But for one project it is showing correctly, but not for other project.
