    Configure a custom order-by clause

    The sort button is easily accessible from the board panel. Issues will be sorted immediately and the new sort order will be visible after page refresh. Limit who can sort using the 'Schedule Issues' permission

    By default Jira boards are ordered by Rank. The plugin allows you to define your own sorting rules without losing drag-and-drop. You are free to sort by priority, assignee, created date or any other custom field.

    The plugin adds a new section in the board sidebar for quick access. You can easily modify the order-by clause from, for example, 'order by priority asc' to 'order by priority desc'.

    More details

    Order your tickers by priority, date, label, assignee or any other field. Imagine you are a product owner who is preparing the scrum backlog for the next sprint, and wish to have only high-business value stories implemented. You could inspect each ticket and manually and adjust its priority by dragging it in the right position relative to other tickets. That takes a lot of work. Alternatively, you could create a Quick Filter and only display the tickets that meet your criteria. However, the tickets will still not be in the correct order. You could also create a new filter where the tickets are ordered by the business value field, but you would have to switch back and forth between and the backlog. Lastly, you could modify the Filter Query of the board and order tickets by the Business Value field, but if you do that, you would quickly discover that the drag-drop-functionality no longer works. The plugin solves exactly this problem.

    Great! It allows you to pick any field to order by - that's very useful.

    Pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. This app is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your Atlassian product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. For Jira 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (500 users) and Jira Service Desk (25 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    This app does not have a Data Center approved version. Only apps meeting a set of performance requirements for large, clustered environments are approved for Data Center.

    However, while server apps are built for single-server deployments, many customers successfully install them in Data Center products. If you're using a Data Center product, Atlassian recommends you contact the vendor to determine compatibility at scale.

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app does not have a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Server license if you decide to install this app in a Data Center product.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for server apps?

    For server apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are available for server apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
