Question about edit Jira issue priority

When I tried to change an issue priority, I found there're two kinds of display. One is pop-up edit screen and another is just change it in the UI page. So I want to know the logic of when it will show pop-up and when is another. I have attached the screen shot for better understanding. Since we made a scriptrunner behavior to restrict the priority to P1-P4, we don't want to show all the priorities when editing it.Priority display.pngPriority pop-up.png

Hi @Jason Liu 

There is not difference as such in both the screens when you click on edit issue option it will open a Edit issue screen and you can edit the fields which are present on the Edit screen of that issue. 

Another screenshot you mentioned is also look for your edit issue permission based on the field present on edit screen but this view is from issues view screens and show only fields which are present on the issue view screen and you will only see pencil icon on those fields which are present on the edit screens if field is not present on the edit screen you will not see pencil icon on them


Looking at your screenshots and details you provided that you are using script runner behavior to restrict what priority values need to shown, can you confirm if behavior you used for this project is used of all the issue-types in that project because as per your screenshot behavior is used for Bug issue-type but not for Story issue-type and due to that all priority values are shown for Story issue-type and for Bug issue-type it's showing only which you have added in behavior, as you can have a behavior as per you issue-type you selected, this could be intentional but just want to check.



Hi Ravina, sorry for not providing the same issue screen shot. The priority I restricted to Story is as the new screen shot. But when it comes to edit pencil on the issue view page, it will show all the priorities that project has. I have priority on all the create, edit and view screens.Story priority.png
