absolutely. Misread question and misstated as a result... in fact to my knowledge there is not way to have 'Priority' schemes/project.

That's great thanks Jack, the reason I asked was I went to issues > priorities and edited the fields and it changed them across all projects. I have 5 service desk projects plus a couple of software projects.

How would I edit one project? Or does that require posting another question?

Will,

Mea culpa...I misread your request and not sure how sad. After rereading I see that you want different names for Priority per project. This, in fact, is not possible at least you can't use the "Priority" field in that manner. You can however add a custom field to do that but unsure if that would meet your needs. Maybe if I better understood the requirements (why you want different labels/names) I could offer an alternate solution. I'm going to edit my original response too. 

Sorry for misleading you.

 

BTW, here is a ticket open on this with Atlassian - JRA-3821
