When viewing an Epic (https://jira.foo.com/browse/FOO-22) there is a list of linked issues "Issues in Epic". The list is ordered by Global Rank in descending order. I would like the list in ascending order, as nature intended. How can I configure this?
Guys, this way was working for me:
Just enjoy the user-friendliness of it.
I added numeric labels to all of the issues under a particular epic and then displayed that column too to help get them in the right order when Ranking to Top. Not the most user friendly way of setting rank but at this point I'll use what I can. Too bad this isn't a higher priority since it is such an old request and many people seem to want/need the same function.
Users no longer have the ability to edit Rank fields on the JIRA 'View Issue' page. The only way that 'Rank' fields can be changed is by drag-and-drop ranking on one of GreenHopper's boards.
If you would like to rearrange the order of the issue on your epic, you can create a board for the Epic and manually resort the issues.
create a filter to show your epics such as "Epic Link" = Issue-1234
Add a heading row above the list and provide sort capability through clicking the heading. Lots of OpenSource JS tools to do this. It'll allow for anyone's use case as long as the column is exposed.
I don't care about that ranking stuff, just want to sort by issue id.
I "fixed" my epic by listing the issues in order (I used an editor, but could easily have used a filter in another window) and then worked from last to first marking each as Rank To Top. It doesn't re-order unless you refresh, you can if you want to check progress. Tedious, but only the work of a couple of minutes.
Some of these issues have been through sprints though. I didn't spot any weird side effects from changing their ranking. I'd have hoped for a warning if what I was doing was bad...
It actually works the other way around. Ranking within the issue doesn't affect the sprint. But moving the issue in the Backlog Board to, say, the next sprint will change the order the issue appears within the epic ticket, if another issue from that epic was already assigned to that sprint!
