I would like to change the default value that gets selected on system field "Priority".
I did not find any way to do this.I want to set some common value as the default priority in create/edit but/story and other screens. Can you please help me with that?
Thanks for responding. This actually does not work for me and when I set the default, I get a message that this action cannot be done. The Jira team has mentioned to me in another thread that setting defaults is not supported for system fields and I need to do something else for this like use plugins etc.
I want to change the default priority from Highest to Medium. This seems like a simple and obvious things to want to do. But here I am 15 minutes later tearing my hair out working through the totally convoluted Jira administration system with no ideas. I've read other threads on this topic which point to various non-existent menu options as Atlassian has likely shuffled the deck chairs repeatedly over the last few years. Is this possible?
I missed your earlier message and did not respond. We just created a "new priority scheme" and made the priority we wanted as default and attached it to projects. We did not use the "default priority scheme" because of this reason of not being able to edit as I mentioned in my earlier comment.
I also faced another trouble with incoming mail handlers creating issues with a different priority and I used the solution specified here. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-67511
I reordered the fields in such a way that the default priority I wanted is the middle one.
We are on Jira server 7.13.5 currently.
@Randall Eike , please check if one of these solutions resolve the issue for you.
How to set up a default option for the priority field for one issue type and rest are editable for users in case of other issue types.
exmpl: For Incident issuetype priority should be auto popuated as P1 and for other than this issue type priority can be editable by user.
Please help in this.
