I have the following simple JQL Quick Filter set up on a board:
project = "CENGN Recruiting" AND issuetype = "Permanent Candidate" ORDER BY "Permanent Position" ASC
However, when I go to the board, the issues are not sorted by the "Permanent Position" custom field. They are not sorted at all.
If I perform the same JQL query in the Issues Search window, I do get the issues sorted correctly.
Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong?
The error here is thinking the "order by" clause has an effect in a quick filter.
It can't override your board sort clause (that way lies madness, both in code and real life). So while it looks like valid JQL, JIRA has no choice but to ignore it.
This is not at all clear in the documentation I'm afraid, and you're not the first one misled by it.
