JQL order by with condition Edited

Is there a way to build a JQL to achieve the following order.

A list needs to be sorted by the start date, but if it is not present, then by the due date:


Issue Start_Date DueDate

i1                        1/1/2020

i2       2/1/2019   2/20/2020

i3                         2/10/2020



Thank you

Hi @Roman_Chernysh ,

Please use JQL as mentioned in the below:

project = demo ORDER BY Start_Date ASC, DueDate ASC

Here, JQL searches for all issues in 'demo' project and sorts them based on Start_Date in ascending order, if Start_Date is not present then sorts based on the DueDate in ascending order. FYI, you can use DESC to order the issues in descending order.
