Is it possible to change the Fix Version/s dropdown menu within the Edit Issue window to show the version numbers in descending order rather than ascending?

Hi Susan

I believe that this issue is related to the following improvement record:

Also, since this is a system feild, it seems to be a hard coded item and I can't see an option to do it. Anyway, I'd suggest raise a new support ticket at Atlassian Support or to a new improvement request at

One way would be modifying the versions-edit.vm file (WEB-INF\classes\templates\jira\issue\field)

There is a #foreach loop that iterates through versions, you can reverse it by doing something like this:

#foreach ($version2 in $versions)
    #set($index = $versions.size() - $velocityCount)
    #set($version = $versions.get($index))

A request for a feature upgrade has been submitted.

Thanks all - given fact that most features of Jira and be customized I was suprised that these fields are hard coded
