How are issues ordered on the JIRA Road Map?

Go to a project, click the Road Map tab, and then click the down arrow icon to see the trackers in the fix version. I am wondering how these issues are doesn't look like they are by priority, issue type, or status. Also, I am wondering if there is a way to change the order of how these issues display?

Hi wikiwiki,

Good question! I couldn't figure it out from observation either until I created a bunch of test issues solely for figuring it out. The answer is, it's sorted by resolution, priority, status, then summary.

Or in diagram form:

Unfortunately this order is hard-coded and isn't configurable.



(Edited to add: Actually, as I dig deeper into the source, this isn't entirely right. The first sort is by resolution, but it only sorts by whether there is a resolution present or not; not the actual value of the resolution.

So the actual priority of the sort order is:

1) Presence/absence of resolution

2) Priority

3) Status

4) Resolution value

5) Summary )

Thank you so much!!!

Thank you so much!!
