Can you rename search filter columns via custom JQL?

Is there a way to rename columns in the issue navigator?

I'm exporting the results to send to business folks and it would be nice to change some of the terminology for their sake.

The columns take their names from the field names, so no, not really.

But.  You could try translating the field names to your desired outputs.

Translating upon export?

I was wondering if it works similar to SQL where I say I want field "A" as "X".

JQL isn't SQL, it just finds issues, it has nothing to say about the output.

The navigator doesn't have renaming functions, you'd have to use the translations throughout the system.
