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.

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?
