Force Ranking New Tickets at Bottom of Backlog with Jira Automation?

Is there a way to configure Jira automation to force rank/send new jira issues to the bottom of the product backlog?



I have a team where the product owner is using the Backlog to manually force rank priority on Jira issues.


Our team is empowered to create new jira issues for the backlog.   However, we're finding that sometimes when they create new jira issues they are appearing towards the top of the product backlog and throwing things off a bit.
