JIRA: Dashboard with issues from multiple projects of which I can determine the order of display

Ytsen Boer, de May 23, 2024

Hi, I'm trying to create the following, but I did not manage:

 

I have issues in multiple JIRA projects.

I would like to maintain a list that shows all issues assigned to me or created by me.

Importantly, I would like to be able to re-order the issues in this list (dragging issues upwards or downwards for example) so that I can define an "order of work", or a "to-do list". This order should be remembered by the list (dashboard/widget).

 

Does such a widget exist, I am not looking to add extra fields to the issues as that would have to happen for each single project in which I have issues (and I am not an administrator in many projects), rather I would like to have a "to-do list", maybe with a JQL filter. And this list would then keep track of the order in which to show them on my personal dashboard.

 

Hope it is clear what I'm trying to achieve, this would be great for me to provide an overview to me and others what the priorities in my work are, across projects.

Hi @Ytsen Boer, de,

In Jira the issues can be ordered (manually) only in agile boards. The order is persistent due the Rank issue field that Jira uses for ordering. 

You could create a new Kanban board in Jira (private, for your own use) that is based on a saved filter that returns only the issues assigned to you, ordered by Rank.

Once you have this board created, you can order the issues by simply moving them up-down with drag & drop on its Backlog tab.

Then, if you want your issues displayed on your dashboard, you have multiple options:

1. Use the Filter results Jira's gadget to display the issues from the filter used by the board, as a list, like this:

JNEJHjE

2. Use the Team Wallboard gadget offered by our Great Gadgets app to display the contents of you agile board. It considers the Rank, in every column.

3. Use the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) gadget offered by our Great Gadgets app to display the contents of your board filter in a tree hierarchy (Epic > Task > Sub-Tasks) - it considers the Rank field

Hope this helps.

Danut.

Hi, thanks for your answer.

However, there are issues with it.

First, I can create a Kanban board, based on a saved filter. But, there is no backlog attached.

Second, I can create a SCRUM board based on a saved filter:

 

assignee = currentUser() order by Rank

 

but then in its backlog, I can indeed manually order the issues!!

 

However, when I copy this approach and use the following filter:

 

labels = DataScience ORDER BY rank

 

then I cannot do the same! Quite puzzling ... I get this message (sorry for the Dutch, I can't change that):

So ... what can I do?

 

PS. The warning message has this (Dutch) content:

 

Issues kunnen niet handmatig worden gerangschikt
Het filterresultaat van het bord wordt niet gerangschikt. Sorteer issues in oplopende rangschikking om issues handmatig te rangschikken op je bord en backlog.

Thank you very much, the issue was a typo in the filter:

 

labels = DataScience ORDER BY rank

 

wher e "rank" should be capitalised:

 

labels = DataScience ORDER BY Rank

That did it!
