Configuring the 'jira.issue.actions.order' property on Jira's Advanced Settings page has no effect in the new Issue detail view




      Atlassian Update - 10 Dec 2019

      Hi Everyone,

      I want to provide a quick update for this topic. this feature, Ability to sort comments/activities on an issue, is being under consideration to be prioritised in the next couple of months. we will keep you posted with the updates. I know this has taken a while to build out, but rebuilding Jira issues is no small feat, so we very much appreciate your patience on this.

      In the meantime, you can opt out of this new issue experience via your Personal Settings > Jira Labs section will have a 'new issue view' toggle to turn it on or off. We will not be disabling this opt-out option until we have rebuilt all the key features of the Jira issues experience you have come to know and love.




      If the comments sorting is changed to 'descending' by the 'jira.issue.actions.order' property on Jira's Advanced Settings, the new issue detail view does not respect the new settings and keep showing the comments on 'ascending' order


      • Jira Cloud

      Steps to Reproduce

      2. From Jira home page, click Settings > System > General configuration

      5. Look at the issues comments on issue view and board's issue detail view

      • It happens only on the new issue detail view (Labs feature)


      Disable the new board's issue detail view following the steps described below:

      1. Click on your avatar, at the bottom-left of the screen then click Profile
      2. Under Labs, disable Issue detail view moving the button to the left (the gray icon means "disabled").

      PS: ask your users to do it, the steps above works only for the current user.
