can i order items in an epic

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?

Thanks

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. 

 

Thanks Phil,

So, reordering within the backlog ended up with the right results. I am now seeing, from within the Epic, the tasks lined up in my (required) order.

Big help!

Thanks,

Scott
