Sorting by fixversion doesnt work

When we do releases our version numbers are dates like 150328

We often release multiple projects with the same release version

When trying to setup a filter to show recent releases, and order by fixVersion it doesnt work, it always sorts by project then fix version.

Is this a bug, is there a way around this.

Hi Dale,

This is a default setting on JIRA since the fixVersion field has the same name for multiple projects. It does the order by using fixVersion and then project.

Hope this clarifies a bit! smile


No this answer is wrong.


It sorts by project then fix version, rather than sorting by fixversion first. This is the issue.

Bothered me too. It's a bug and there's currently no way to work around.

They're gonna work on it if it gets enough votes: 

Please vote for it, thanks!
