I tried to change my default issue type (Bug to Story) by going to Project Settings -> Issue Types -> Actions -> Edit Issue Types -> Default Issue Type -> Story and clicked "Save"
Note: I am using a "Default Issue Type Scheme"
However, when I try to create an issue, the first thing I see is the default issue type is still "bug" which was my original default issue type. I want it to be "Story" not "Bug". Bug should be selected when I clicked on the drop down.
Anyone know how to fix this issue?
In my experience the Default Issue Type is considered only the very first time a user creates an issue in the relevant project. Thereafter, from my experience, JIRA "remembers" the last issue type selected and automatically selects that for you again.
I have not tested this extensively, but it has been my anecdotal experience.
Just now, I tried it in a project. The available issue types are Epic, Story, and Sub-task. I set the Default Issue Type in the associated scheme to Story. I displayed the project's board (board filter is set to all issues for just that project). I clicked Create. The Create screen opened with Story selected. In the Create screen I changed that to Epic and completed the creation of an Epic issue. I clicked Create again and the Create Issue dialog popped open with Epic selected.
