I'd like to order items (tasks) within an epic that would then convey "flow". Currently, these are ordered by their creation with a project.
Is there a way to define the order of tasks within an epic?
I assume you are using either JIRA software 7.X or JIRA Agile for earlier versions. One way of seeing your flow is to use the ranking field that the backlog uses for managing which items are considered higher priority. So adding ORDER BY rank should show you the priority flow.
If you want to use some other order then you will need to somehow store the sort order within the issue.
You can change the order of the issues by selecting the epic and dragging/dropping the sub items in the right panel.
It is also possible to reorder the issues in the backlog (you can also show all the epics and filter by them when selecting "Epic Panel" in the "Epic" filter).
