Can a Project (or Project category) have its own priorites?

Example:

2 Project Categories

- Support Desk

- Projects

I would like to assign one set of priorities (Jira default) to Support Desk related Jira Projects and another set to Projects related Jira Projects, like Moscow.

I am able to create them but the the Jira default (Blocker etc) and Moscow (Must have) show up in both projects.

No. Priorities (and resolutions, to a lesser extent) are a massive weakness in Jira because they are global.

It's the most popular unresolved problem with Jira (and has been for many years) https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-3821 - vote on that, and read the comments for some work-arounds that may help.

Thanks Nic, will do

Is there any update about this in new jira versions?

Resolutions are still global, but controllable with properties in the worflow well before the original question, which is why I said "(and resoltions, to a lesser extent)"

Jira Server/DC people got priority schemes in 7.8 (ish, I can't remember the exact point).  Jira Cloud people still have global priority lists.

Like Marta Lopez Reyes -UOC- likes this

No, it's a long standing feature request - best off using a custom field for now and vote for/watch the feature request for updates.

Thanks J, i will do the costum field route
