Question about JIRA Filters

I'm trying to sort CSI tickets based on MRR field value.

project = CSI AND status in ("In Progress", New, Pending, Assigned) AND issueFunction in hasLinks() ORDER By MRR ASC

But the sorting results are not the one I want.
It showed sorting like below format:

How can I sort the number base on the true value as (1, 2, 3, 10, 20,

What type of field is MRR?  I suspect it's not a number, so the issues are being sorted alphabetically, not numerically.


MRR is a text field. Should I made it numerical?

Should we convert the field?

Yes, changing it to a numeric will fix the order.  The other option is to prefix the shorter options with 00000
