Rank vs. ranking question

I am trying to write a query that represents stories ordered just the same way they appear under plan mode, so that when PO drags and drops them (sets the priority of the backlog) the're shown accordingly.

Which of the following queries are correct?

1) project = X ORDER BY Rank ASC

2) project = X ORDER BY Ranking ASC

What is the difference between these fields and usage meaning?

Thanks in advance,

Look at your board's filter and see which field is used for ranking and use that for your filter

For our system it's "ORDER BY Rank ASC". Rank is our "Global Rank" field. For differences see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GHKB/Difference+between+Global+Rank+and+Rank

I am also trying to get the similar filtering, but at a Sprint level and for multiple projects

issueFunction in inSprint("Storefronts Scrumboard", "2013-Q2-05-1 04/25-05/15") AND issuetype in (Bug, Story) ORDER BY RANK ASC

The order of the issues in the Issue Navigator (JIRA side) does not match the order on the GH board.
