Admins can now modify the Project Lead and/or the Default Assignee fields of a next-gen project
When a next-gen project is created for the first time, the Project Lead and Default Assignee fields default to certain values depending on certain factors and the type of project. In Classic, these fields are available in the Project Settings → Details page and the project admin is able to change the values in these fields at will. In next-gen, however, these fields were not available for modification and the defaults set during project creation were not modifiable by any actor related to the project (project admins, Project Lead, etc.).
We are very happy to announce that admins can now modify the Project Lead and Default Assignee fields for all Jira Software and Jira Service Desk next-gen projects.
Customers can choose to edit the Project Lead and Default Assignee fields by following these steps:
Open the Project Details page available under
Project Settings → Details
This release finally gives next-gen admins greater control over these two important fields of a project and puts an end to the need for time-consuming workarounds.
