As the JQL is defined within each unique JIRA project the Escalator for JIRA automatically adds the project key to the end of every JQL query defined.

Additionally, ORDER BY is not supported in JQL statements used for the Escalator.  Including an ORDER BY within your JQL may cause unforeseen issues.
