JQL order null values

Hi All,


is there a way to order null/empty values after the ones with value using JQL

Possibly something like:



     When clientPriorityRank > 0 then clientPriorityRank

     When clientPriorityRank is null then 0

It is not possible in JQL. All you can do is to order by a field using ASC, DESC

Why is it not possible? ThHis would be a very useful and commonly needed functionality. We use a custom field that designates a certain priority order as a number but it is often empty and I want to sort by highest number first and then the empty values at the end and can't do it in Jira.

It's frastrating to have this unfriendly sorting problem.

Please vote and watch the following issues if you have the same problem.
