How to change the issue type from initiative to user story


I was trying to create user story within an Epic but accidentally the issue type got selected as Initiative and now I'm not getting any option to change the type to user story

Hi @Diksha ,

If the steps suggested by @Vishwas or @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ are still not working, probably look through the project permission scheme and identity if you have the correct permissions to move issue.

Hey @Diksha 

Welcome to Atlassian Community !!

To change issue type you have to perform "Move" operation within same project. in the next step it will be asked to change project and issue type. Please change only issue type to "Story". And complete the process.


Hope this helps !!

Welcome to the Community!

Go into the issue and look for the "move" option in the tools, this will offer you the option to change project and/or issue type.
