I see there is an API available to set rank, but I don't see how to change the rank via Automation. Preferably I'd like to be able to send an issue to the top or the bottom rank so that it shows up at the top or the bottom of my agile board.
While this still doesn't exist in Automation, I much later filed a support ticket about this and they made a good suggestion to use the "Send Web Request" action to just directly do the API call from Automation. See the documentation below. I have not tested this but it looks like it should work.
How is this an accepted answer?
The first link is broken and the second one allows you "to rank an issue before or after another issue". So are we supposed to get the lowest ranked issue and then to hook into issue creation and inject this put functionality? This is a frustrating experience to say the least.
Thanks for the question, developer from Automation for Jira here.
We don't properly support rank actions, but we're already tracking this at https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-919 (Due to a [bug in Jira Service Desk|https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDSERVER-1367] you might need to open the linked issue in an incognito window to see it)
We've got quite a few higher priority items in our backlog at the moment so it will be a while before we can get to this, but we'll let you know when we get a chance to work on this.
Just to let you know I ran into the same absence of this function.
Shouldn't be so hard to get this working. We probably only need 'move to top' or 'move to bottom'. So the highest rank or the lowest rank.
Thanks for reading this. I doubt my remark will change anything in the priority of this issue after so many years (LOL).
Have a great day,
