How do I add custom SVG issue type icons in JIRA?

Via the UI JIRA only allows bitmap issue type icon uploads. However, JIRA 7 comes with prepackaged SVG (vector) issue type icons.

How can I add additional SVG files as selectable issue type avatars in JIRA? Just dropping them into /images/icons/issuetypes doesn't work after restarting JIRA. I've added both an SVG file and a same-named 16x16 PNG file.

Hi Chad,

I'm trying to do the same thing here. It seems the default issue types use an avatar and they don't point to a .png file. And, this avatars are .svg.

So, I think the only way to add a .svg file to a issue type is by creating an avatar directly on the database and associate it to the issue type, also directly on the database.

If I discover something else here I'll let you know.

Hi guys,
I have exact same problem - I converted my png -> svg and uploaded them to /issuetypes, then JIRA restart but no luck. Any news?
