How do I order by one field, then within that result, order by a second field?

Do your search then add as many ORDERS separated by a "," eg. ORDER BY resolution ASC, Assignee DESC.

Should add for beginners who might look this up you need to switch to JQL.

Hi! This does not work for the case of:

  • ORDER BY duedate ASC, Rank ASC

as I get the error about ranking

Has anyone else had the same?

This functionality does not work. The sorting is wrong. I am ordering  by:

ORDER BY due ASC, created ASC 

And as you can see the result is off. The second column is not sorted properly.

Hint: If you have a custom field with some texts, then this works only if you sort these entries alphabetically. It seems that otherwhise the order is taken from the indexnumber and not from the string. Strange!
