How to rename or label Jira system fields

Mahdi Challouf March 31, 2024

Dears,

I need to rename:

  • the Jira system field "issue type" to type
  • the "Project" Jira field to Prog for certain projects only
  • At the top of the create screen "Create issue" to Create only

Is there a way to achieve this or any suggestion for an add-on that can help, please?

 

Regards,

Hi @Mahdi Challouf 

You can't do this natively.

But, you mention Scriptrunner in your tags.

If you have this App, you could use Behaviours to rename the field's name on a screen? See how behaviours work here: https://docs.adaptavist.com/sr4js/latest/features/behaviours

Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ 

Yes we have a list of add-ons already installed in the Jira instance Scriptrunner is one of them and we're willing also to try others if they provide a straightforward solution for this matter.

For renaming the issue type to type I used script runner behaviors setting a label to the desired field in the initializer and it works fine, how about renaming in the create screen have you any idea on how can we play in the display view I want to show only Create instead of Create Issue for all the projects

Hi @Mahdi Challouf 

Sean's answer is the one to look at for this.

Although I echo the thought here - given it's complex, why do you need to do this? What's the concern with leaving "issue" on there given this is a standard piece of terminology within Jira?

Hey @Mahdi Challouf ,

Behaviours is focused on system/custom field changes and customisation. I don't think you are able to change the "Create Issue" or "Project" words to something else - apart from aesthetics, not sure why you would want to as well.

You can try ScriptRunner's Fragments for customising/changing Jira's UI or adding/removing elements..but again, I don't think it is possible to change that "Create Issue" thing. 

You could however, inject a link to a whole new HTML form or page or whatever which fits to your needs - but once again..apart from aesthetics, not sure why you would want to as well unless there is a very important and specific reason which would need it, and it is painful enough to do a customised/complex thing such as injecting a whole new form/page/etc.

Just my thoughts,

Sean
