How can I create a new issue type in my project?

I created a new Project in Jira Work Management. I only got the option of using "Task" or "Subtask", however I want to create different issue types, such as Epics, Story, Meeting, Document, etc. I do not have a admin profile, however I am an admin for this project, therefore I'm able to access the project settings but I do not have any option called Issue Types.

The Project Type is - Business, can this be related to the difficulty of creating a customized issue type?

Hi Marco,

Unfortunately, you need a sys admin to add the new issue types to your project issue type scheme.  



Hi Fabian, 

Thanks for your reply!

I'll ask for that action to my admin.
