How do I export my product backlog, retaining the prioritized order?

I prioritize the stories in the backlog by drag-and-drop.

When I search, or just select and export, the list is sorted by story number (key). This export is not what I need.

Is there a field that stores the placement (priority) of the stories, that I can use to order a filtered search for export?

Claire, this is the way I do it:

  1. Go to JIRA Issue Search (get out of the Agile view)
  2. Do an advanced Search using the same filter that your product backlog would adhere to. In my case, it's something like this:  project = "Project Name" and Sprint is empty and status !=Closed ORDER BY rank



Ah... Never mind, I found it – RANK.
