change default field name

I think he means changins the name of a field like Summary or Priority.

It can be done, but requires some work.

That solution is not doable on Cloud, is it?

I doubt it works on cloud. I haven't tried this on server either mind you.

No, it's restricted.

What do you mean by Default Field Name? Where?

Like "Description" or "Assignee" or "Attachment"?

Why would you like to change JIRA's built-in field names? Translation purposes? To match terms in a contract?

You can create a custom field with any other name and functonality you might need...

Unless it's summary, issue type, priority, versions, component/s, priority, resolution, status, assignee, etc, which all have functions you can't do with custom fields

You are right, Nic.

So, Gilad, what fields would you like to rename exactly?
