How to rename an "impediment" flag in JIRA Agile

Andrei [errno] Community Champion Feb 03, 2015

Flagging an issue in JIRA agile spawns an email with an update = "Flagged : Impediment". Is there a way to rename "impediment" into something more generic => "yes" or smth?.

do I have to dig into some JIRA-Agile properties file?

The flag is custom field named "Flagged" of type check-box with one option: Impediment.

You can go into your custom fields > configure and change the name manually, like other check-box fields.

Just make sure it doesn't say in this field description it doesn't ask to not change the text value.
