Editing SW project name? Edited

Hi all,


I'm back into JIRA after being away for a number of years (on the regular).

Curious about a few things that I can't easily get done for setup:


How do I edit the name of a Project?

I've been fishing around to no avail. ;-)

Thank you!!

Hi Tanya,

To change the Board name, click on the 3 dots menu in the upper right side and select Board settings.

Then go to the General button on the left side. There you can change the board name.

To change the project name, you must be a project administrator. If you are you will see the Project Settings link on the bottom left hand side. 

Once in there, click on Details. There you can change the project name. 

Thank you  John!
