[JIRA] Two dimentional statistics gadget: sorting of versions

I have configured a "Two Dimentional Filter Statistics" dashboard gadget with following set up.

  • X Axis: Internal release (custom field of type 'Single version picker')
  • Y Axis: Assignee
  • Sort direction: Ascending

In the X Axis, releases are ordered ascending by the text name. Is there any partcular way to sort the releases by the release schedule?

I was asking almost the same thing here https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/161223/any-way-to-define-natural-sorting-in-gadgets. Define sort order in a gadget (other than alphabetically)

A work around :

Create a new Date type customfield .

When issue is created or updated copy the value of the release date in this customfield . (Programmatically through custom event listener)

Display this field in the gadget and then you can sort according to the release date.

It's a good suggestion but in the gadget's table header row there will be a series of dates rather than a series of release names. That's not what end users want.
