Sort Backlog by Priority Edited

Hello everyone,


i already checked the Posts about this topic below, but these didnt help for my Problem:

I want to sort my Backlog by Priority.

I created 3 types, as you can see at the picture below:



Project = "Projectname" ORDER BY priority DESC


But when I activate this Filter, it is simply not working!



Thanks 4 your help

thanks for your answer. As I said, I did exactly that.

I've just checked it on my test project and it works properly:

2018-09-17 10_36_04-[Filter for TEST board] Issue navigator - JIRA.png2018-09-17 10_36_26-TEST board - Agile Board - JIRA.pngCheck your setting and if everything ok - try to refresh backlog page.

Thats crazy,... mine isnt.

As you can see, my Backlog isnt ordered by prio.



My Filter (Sort by Prio) is set, but it does simply not order my Backlog.

just to chip in here, ranking for board is currently locked at this moment and there is an existing feature request which you can track: Ability to prioritise issues in the backlog view more easily.

There are several question raised here as well:

The board remains sorted by rank because it is ranked and that's the point of a board.  An order in a quickfilter is ignored because the board is supposed to be showing you the ranking.

Hope this relates
