You want to use a different Global Rank field type for your Rapid Board.
Please be aware that having multiple Rank fields will have performance impact for middle/large JIRA instance (400k+ issues).

You will need to modify your Rapid Board filter to sort by the rank filter you want to use.
- Navigate to the Rapid Board you want to change the field that is used for rank
Click tools then Configure
- Open the Filters page
- Click on "Edit Filter"
You will want to enter the Edit mode for this filter if you are not brought there automatically
- From here, you will want to switch to advanced filter mode
Change the filter to rank by the name of the new field.
project = JIRA ORDER BY RANK ASC
project = JIRA ORDER BY "NEW RANK" ASC
- Save your changes
- Re-index JIRA
Your project should be using the new Global Rank field. The Configuration will not reflect the custom field you are using in the Rank status. We currently have a Improvement request to make sure that the Rank status will show what rank field is used.
