Change status sort order by their position on the statuses page
currently statuses in cloud version are sorted by their:
- Status category
- Project (global statuses are shown above)
- Status ID (field id?)
and as a Jira admin I'm unable to change the order.
In server/DC version this feature is much more usable and I'm able to change the order which has huge impact on how we use Structure in planning.

thanks for the answer and I now understand better how you have implemented the functionality.
Your idea about manually changing the order would work especially to the highest levels of the issue hierarchy, where grouping by status is mostly used. When branches are opened, then would be quite laborious to manually change the order of statuses. Then if just possible, some kind of structure wide or global setting for this would be great.
Thank you for your request!
It would be nice to follow the same logic in the cloud version as well. Unfortunately, Jira doesn't provide an API for ordering statuses according to the Jira configuration.
As I understand, you use a Grouper to group issues by Status. Would it help if you could manually change the order of generated groups (statuses)?
