How I can Sort the priority in Sprint board?

I didn't find any option to sort the issues by priority. I have also used the custom filter with `Order By Priority DESC`. But when I used custom filter on sprint board, nothing happen. Could anyone describe how to sort the issues by Priority in Sprint Board in team-managed project?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The sort order in a board is determined by the board filter.  The default is "project = XYZ order by rank".  In boards where you have no control over the filter, that is what will be used in the background.

When you say "custom filter", I assume you are talking about "quick filters".  These are used for hiding issues currently shown on the board, to enable people to drill down into their issue list.  They cannot alter the sort order on the board.

If you are using a board based on a custom filter, then you can edit the filter, so that you order by priority (or anything else) instead of rank.  If you do that, you will lose the ability to drag and drop issues into a different order because that can only ever be based on a rank field.

Hi @sohail ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Sprint items are ordered by Rank filed. That field allows users to use drag and drop in order to move up/down a ticket. You could ordered them manually. You can't have a default order.

A workaround could be to create different swimlanes based on priority values :

  1. Go to Board > Configure > Swimlanes
  2. Base swimlanes on Queries
  3. Set one JQL query for each priority (ie: 'priority = Blocker')

Hope this helps,

Fabio

Hi Fabio,

Thank you for your message. I went ahead to have a query modified as:

project = ABC OR project in ("24638", "XYZ") AND labels = Connect_2.0 AND labels = IdentityTracers ORDER BY Rank

When I update this under swimlanes, I still see the list of Jira's in multiple priority order. Sorry if I am confusing, I meant I would like to show team the sprint backlog showing all the Jira's in Priority order and for this I went ahead to update the saved filter query as above. Please suggest if this can be possible?
