How to edit or update the priority of a ticket type bug. 


I'm able to edit the priority of other ticket types like story, sub-tasks etc., but not for ticket type Bug.

The likely explanation is that, for the Screen Scheme that the Bug is using, the Priority field is not on the Edit screen. I believe the Priority field, being a system field, is always displayed on the View screen, but you can't edit it unless it's on the Edit screen.

Hello @Muzzamil 

Welcome to the Atlassian community!

What happens when you try to edit the priority on Bugs? Is the field disabled? Do you get an error message? Can you provide a screen image of what you see?
