Can the name of issue type "Epic" be changed in Cloud Jira?

The word "Epic" is not very meaningful for the business we are developing for. It would be more straightforward to for the top level to be called "Feature". Beneath that we would have User Story, Bug, etc (but not Feature obviously).

How can we change the name of the Epic issue type to Feature?

Hi Wendy,

your question was already asked here:

The last comment is from March 2017. Unfortunately, there's no solution and I also have no workaround for you.

Maybe you want to raise a feature request at Atlassian:

Thanks for the response, Thomas.

I've raised a feature request. Thanks for the link
