Can I upload Custom Priority Icons in Jira Cloud?

Found an article about it for Server, but not for Cloud instance. 

Here is the article:


Tried for Cloud- always get an 500 error.

Hello Natalia,

I hope you are having a nice day.

The steps to upload a new icon to priorities in JIRA Cloud are basically the same provided in the Server documentation:

- Upload the image to an online public path that your JIRA can access

- Navigate to JIRA Settings > Issues > Priorities > Click to edit a priority

- Click Select image > Paste the Icon URL path > Update

- Check the icon displayed in your priority:

For more information about it, check the Section Adding, editing, and deleting a priority in the documentation below:

Configuring statuses, resolutions, and priorities

Let me know if this information helps.

hi @Petter Gonçalves 

It did help. Thank you very much!

You are welcome!

Have a nice week ahead and let us know if you have any new questions. :)

I'm finding that the icon doesn't render correctly when I'm looking at an issue. See attached. Any suggestions?

Hello @Natasha Denny

Could you please send us the image you are trying to upload?

Hello Natasha,

I was able to properly add the files you provided with no problems:

I performed the following steps:

  1. Uploaded the custom icon as an attachment to a Jira Issue and right click on the image to copy the image URL.
  2. Click Jira Settings > Issues > Priorities
  3. Click the 'Edit' link next to the desired priority.
  4. Paste the copied URL into the Icon URL field.
  5. Click the Update button.

Please, let me know if the steps above have worked for you.

Hi @Petter Gonçalves  - this worked for me however, the issue is that when I view a particular issue with that priority type, the image doesn't display properly. See the second image above

Hi @Petter Gonçalves

I am have the same problem as @Natasha Denny . Image renders successfully in priority screen, but not on issues or boards. This is on cloud. Any suggestions?


Thank you!

I am having the same issue. I would like to use the default priority icons from the server version (chevrons, not arrows), but they are not available in the Cloud. I tried uploading them as you described, but they do not render correctly on a board. Please help!
