    • Notice:
      When an issue is open, the "Fix Version/s" field conveys a target, not necessarily a commitment. When an issue is closed, the "Fix Version/s" field conveys the version that the issue was fixed in.

      Description

      The Merge Rows (diff) step requires incoming data to be sorted by the comparison fields.

      There should be a dialog window reminding the user of this requirement when clicking the "OK" button, just as it is done with the "Group By" step today.

      UX Recommendation

      Below is a link to the UX recommendation for the sorting message.
