Hi @Zulfikar I Ramadhan ,

Welcome to Community!

Please refer below document on how to edit the issue type.

Please note that you must be a Jira administrator with the Administer Jira permissions to add, edit, or delete issue types in company-managed projects.

Hi @Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_


Thanks for your feedback, actually I do have the role of administrator.

When I take a look at the Issue Type it is named as "Task", but when trying to create ticket it is showing another name "Multiple Assignment" instead of "Task".

So how can I change from "Multiple Assignment" to "Task" ?

Hi @Zulfikar I Ramadhan ,

You would like to add issue type Task to your project or you would like rename the "Multiple Assignee" issue type t Task?

If you would like to add then

  • Navigate to project settings > Issue types
  • Click on Edit Issue types

  • Move the required issue type from Right to Left for the current issue type scheme.
  • Save the Configuration and make sure to check the issue type scheme is shared with what and all projects.

I dont want to add new issue type, but I would like to rename the "Multiple Assignee" issue type to "Task"




Go to Admin -> Issues -> Issue types, find the "multiple assignees" type and click edit - you'll be able to give it a new name.

Check with any other projects that might be using it first though, it's a shared configuration and you need to consider everyone.
