Enabling Ranking

Enabling ranking allows you to rank issues on a board by drag-and-drop, and to create sprints. It also enables JIRA Agile to group sub-tasks together underneath their parent issue.

Enabling Ranking

  1. Navigate to the desired board, then click Board > Configure.

    (info) Note that only the administrator of a board (or a person with the 'JIRA Administrators' global permission) can configure a board.
  2. Click the Add Rank button. This will append the following to your filter's query:


    (info) JIRA Agile automatically creates a custom field called Rank, of type Global Rank (see JIRA Agile - JIRA Configuration). Please ensure that your JIRA instance contains only one custom field called Rank, and that the Rank field is assigned to the global context (i.e. not to specific issues or projects).
    (info) Sort order must be ascending, descending sort order is not supported.
