Hello @DmitryP,

Thank you for reaching out.

I was not able to find an article about all the possible ways to edit an issue, however, I can provide you with this information. Check below the supported ways to edit an issue in Jira:

  1. Through an issue screen: Added in the create operation, edit operation, or in a workflow transition.
  2. Using the Bulk operation method: Mentioned in the documentation below:
    Edit multiple issues at the same time 
  3. CSV or JSON Import: Although these methods are typically used to create/import new issues from other applications to Jira, you can also use it to edit existing issues by simply mapping the issue key field from the existing issues in the file:
    Importing data from CSV 
    Importing data from JSON 
  4. Using Jira REST API: This method is usually implemented when creating scripts or external apps that integrate with Jira:
    Edit Issue through REST API - Jira Cloud 

That being said, can you please provide us with the reason you are asking this information? We would like to understand your needs and evaluate if it would be useful for our customers if we create an article about this.

Let us know if you have any questions.
