On June 21 2021, an update was released to resolve
JRACLOUD-40929 (which was opened 18 November 2014). That update which adds some sort options does not resolve the issue.
The point is for the user to choose which issue is #1, which is #2, which is #3 all the way to the last issue not to sort according to a few pre-defined options. This could be achieved by for example allowing issues to be dragged up and down to reorder them.
