Order by the same ticket order as shown in the "IN" clause



I have a JQL that has an "IN" clause which contains a list of jira tickets IDs. I want to show this list of returned jira tickets in the same order as listed in the "IN" clause. Here's the JQL script:

id in (PENNY-2852, PENNY-2853, PENNY-2854, PENNY-2855, PENNY-2856, PENNY-2857, PENNY-2858, PENNY-2860, PENNY-2861, PENNY-2862, PENNY-2863, PENNY-2864, PENNY-2865, PENNY-2866, PENNY-2867, PENNY-2868, PENNY-2872, PENNY-2873,PENNY-2898,PENNY-2896,PENNY-2897,PENNY-2913,PENNY-2912,PENNY-2935,PENNY-2911,PENNY-2934,PENNY-2915,PENNY-2933,PENNY-2914) "


ORDER by key does not help much as the tickets could be created in any random order but the order mentioned in the "IN" clause should be maintained. How can I achieve that?

There's no way to do that.  Your "in" clause has nothing to do with ordering.

You'll need to look at other data on the issues for your sort.

Why tickets are not ordered by the same order sent in the "in" clause should not be the case? Any suggested workarounds?

Why would they be? 

A question asking for a list of issues is one thing.  How you display it (including the sort order if one even applies in your result report) is another thing.

You'll need to look at something else to do the ordering.
