I have a team that does not use Agile and we do not have JIRA Service Desk. The team is looking for a way to automatically prioritize issues within a single filter and in a single project.
I don't believe Rank will work because they do not use Agile and they want to prioritize issues automatically by Issue Type (there are 13 issue types within the project).
For the time being, I've set them up with 13 filters, each filter having its own Filter Results gadget on their team dashboard and the gadgets arranged in descending priority. The problem is, with 13 filters this takes up a lot of space on their dashboard.
Is there a field that we can add to the issues with a formula to determine rank of the individual issue? Or a way to prioritize in the list view based on Issue Type?
You're right, you need Agile (or Software if you're on JIRA 7+) to provide the ranking field.
The only way I can think of doing this without ranking is to
I believe all we're looking for here is typical ordering. In JIRA, that is brought to us with the ORDER BY keyword in JQL.
For instance, let's take a look at this query on JAC –
project = CONF AND resolution is EMPTY ORDER BY type ASC, priority DESC, due ASC, created ASC
To break down the sorting –
The problem is that the issue type order that they're looking for is not alphabetical which I think Nic's comment would solve that issue if we added a numeral to the issue type name. If there was a way to define the order using JQL something like (ORDER BY type Issue Type C, Issue Type A, Issue Type B, etc.), that would be perfect.
