Alter the Create-subtask button

Keiko Kamiya May 19, 2024

The current Jira Software issue view has the "Create subtask" button. We want to alter it to have a different wording, for instance, "Create risk" button instead. Can we achieve this in Jira Cloud?

Hi @Keiko Kamiya 

no, it is not possible to change the name of the button. This is a standard button used throughout Jira.

Yep, this is because you might have sub-task types that are not called "risks" - it's a button designed to support all cases.  Changing it to limit it to one type would render it useless all the other things you can use sub-tasks for.

Hi @Keiko Kamiya 

I don't think we can change the naming of this system default button, however, you can create a sub-task issue type, name it as 'risk' and give it an eye-catching icon.

Edit a sub-task issue type

  1. Select > Issues.

  2. Click Sub-tasks.

  3. Find the relevant sub-task issue type and click Edit.

  4. Edit the name, description, and avatar as needed and click Update
