How to change Request Type in JIRA Service Desk?

I can't figure out how to change "Request Type" in a Jira Service Desk ticket. Move function only allow changing "Issue Type". The solution mentioned in does not work.

Hi @Vinh Lam 

What exactly is not working?

Request Types are mapped to Issue Types. You can move between Request Types as long as they are applicable. You will find an option from the right hand panel. In the same panel you will find other Request Types that are not applicable for the current Request Type. In that case you need to change the Issue Type using the Move. When you move the issue from one Issue Type to another you need to map the fields are well.


opps, I have not been aware that there is a request type on the right panel... I only see the one on the top and it is not allowed to change. 

Thank you.

Hi @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ 
Is there a chance that in that move action it asks you to update the 'Request Type' field?

This is my first time using Jira.

How do you change the Request Type of a ticket that you've already created?  The Request Type that I want to change, appears in the Details section in the right hand side of the ticket.

I need the same as @Soporte Inlogiq - for example something that comes through via email automatically has iussue type = incident, our service agents may move this to a 'request' issue type but this makes the request type blank as it doesn't force them to choose a request type.

Simply add the Customer Request Type field to your edit screen.
