I would like to be able to sort out JIRA versions in descending order. Our versions are numerical values, basically I'd like them to be sorted so that when I select a value for "Affect version" the highest number will be displayed first.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I'm afraid you can't. Not without an add-on. The orde is part of the Version interface and stored in the JIRA database. Manually reordering a version triggers a save operation. This order is also used when displaying the Affected Version(s) or Fix Version(s) fields. If you want a different order, you will have to manually adjust this in the Versions configuration screen.
I don't know how to do this in the JIRA interface itself, but if you are looking to generate reports, our plugin Intelligent Reports can easily sort the versions by name and pick the first one to display in the report.
Intelligent reports lets you desing the report template directly in Microsoft Word, and set up simple point and click rules to define which data is included in the report. No programming language or API to learn.
