Re-assign task under different project group



I accidentally assigned a task to the wrong project group. I would like to re-assign it to a different one, but I don't see a way to change that. Under the edit fields, I can edit every other field except for the project group the ticket was assigned under.

How are you doing this "assign to project group"?  And where?

When we (the company I work for) go to create a JIRA ticket, we hit 'Create Issue', then it gives us the following fields :


Issue Type




The 'Project' field is where we keep our project groups, and that is the field I would like to change on the ticket, except I can only seem to edit every field except that one

So grumpy-me wants to point out that "project group" is meaningless.  You just mean "project".  It's pedantic, and it's "jira speak", but it is important to be clear on what we're talking about, otherwise we'll go in the wrong direction.

A project in Jira is a container for a pile of issues, it's not a field.  To change an issue's project, you have to move it (from the current container to another one)

Go into the issue that's in the wrong project and hit the options or functions menu.  Hopefully you should see "move issue" in there (if not, ask your admin about your permissions to move - you need "move" in the current project and "create" in the target project)
