Jira is made mainly for software development, but it is so highly customizable, that any business process and industry can adopt it. It's great but I'm only slowly getting to know it...
However, I would like to ask: Is there any way to associate different issue priority with Issue type scheme or project? There some IT and some pure business projects our team is working on, and therefore some cutom priorities on non-IT project would not make any sense on IT testing and delivery, where different severity and blockers are required to be logged.
For example if non-IT project uses only issues as "Task", Sub-task and IT "Defect", "Improvement", "feature", etc...

- Workaround (not very smart :-) ) with Behaviours plugin:
a.) Create different Priority select custom fields for different issue typles and one main text custom field for Priority.
b.) Show proper Priority custom field for selected issue type (hide others for different issue types).
After update copy field to main Priority custom field.
c.) Make main text custom field for Priority read-only. It will be used to present results from different custom fields for related issue typles.
JIRA still lack this functionality and as you can see
it doesn't seem to change in a near future. That's why we decided to provide Extended Schemes for JIRA which allows you to manage (hide and show for Projects/Issue Types) not only Priorities but also Resolutions and Link Types.
