How are issues sorted in "Issues in Epic"? Can I sort by issue type?

In an Epic there is a section "Issues in Epic" - apparently this is sorted by issue key (hence by submission date).

Is there a way to display this section sorted first by issue type, then by issue key?

Or better yet, dynamically by any sortable field?

Arguably one of the most irritating pieces of the software.

Once you're above 20 tasks, and you're using an epic that spans multiple weeks, the view becomes completely unusable.  

What I want to see:

  • Open tickets.  Moved closed into it's own section at the bottom.  
  • Breakout by sprint, similar to the view if I click 'Agile Board' (but clicking this link every time, and then waiting for it to load; explaining to rest of team how to make sense of this view)
  • Give actual weight to 'Priority' in some way.  E.g., sort automatically by priority 

Essentially the Epic and Epic Agile Board views need to be merged.  

Not exactly what you want, but it can be done manually . . . On the action wheel you can "rank to top" or "rank to bottom."  Keep in mind this is the same rank used in sprint boards.

I was afraid of that.

"Rank" serves a different purpose. It would be quite cumbersome using the rank to "sort" by issue type, involving moving each and every issue around. One would also lose the relative ranking across issue types.

It seems to me that providing a means to "order by issue_type asc, rank asc" would/should be possible.
