Yes, that's correct.  If you want to be able to order a list, you need it to be ordered by a value that gives each item a unique position in the list, which can then change when you re-order an item.

You can't do that with priority (or, in fact, any other field in Jira).

Imagine a simple case - you have three issues in a backlog, ordered by priority:

Priority = medium

Priority = medium

Priority = medium

If you move the third one up above the second, what do you change the priority to that tells the "order by priority" tto sort them differently?
