When creating a new project, Jira Cloud creates the following issue types by default: Story, Bug, Epic, Task, and Sub-task. We have renamed "Bug" to "Defect" but now, when a new project is created, it creates another issue type called "Bug". We don't want to call them bugs. I can't find a way to change this behavior in any of the admin screen.
Thank you for your help!
Looks like that no, you can read more in this discussion https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/How-can-I-change-default-issue-type-for-a-next-gen-project/qaq-p/1148127
That's why I rarely create new Projects from scratch. I usually create a project based on an existing project. Some people call that using a project template. But it will use the same Issue Type Scheme that the original project uses.
By the way, that will not work for Next-gen projects.
