Hi @Clare McNeish 

If this is a Company-managed Project, you'll need to be a Jira/Product Admin. If this is a Team-managed Project, you need to a Project Admin in that Project.


  1. Go to the Project's "Project Settings"
  2. Select "Details" from the left-hand menu (if not already there)
  3. Modify the Key
  4. Press Save

Note: There are some things to consider when changing a Project Key - see the details on this help page:

Hi @Clare McNeish ,

  • Only Jira admins can edit the key in a company-managed project

  • Project admins can edit the key in a team-managed project
