Sort a Structure Using an Expression Formula


Structure for Jira allows you to create structures to organise issues and projects. This script sorts the issues from a structure based on an expression formula. Sort issues by criteria, such as assignee (and key when the assignee is the same).


As a project manager, I want all issues in my structure to be sorted by the assignee so I can view how workload is spread across the team. I can configure this script in the Script Console to create the Sort Generator associated with a structure.
