Change a projects type

Just setup a cloud JIRA instance and it asked me to create a project.  I did and it created a project that is Software type.  My project was more of a Business type. I there a way to change that or do I need to delete and recreate?

Simple fix dude.. 

First make sure you have Admin rights...

  1. Go to Settings (top right conner)
  2.  Projects > (You should see a list of all the projects) 
  3. Under "Operations"  
  4. click on "Change project type" 
  5. From the drop down menu click on "Business" and click Change.

This changes just between Software and Business. But when I recreated the project it had a few more descriptive options. I wonder if those options display if I try and change the project type...

That's normal.. But you can choose to customize to your heart's content. =)

The project type is mostly for telling JIRA how to do the initial setup, and then later (JIRA 7 onwards), classification as well.  As Akeem says, you can "customise to your heart's content" later - that means changing the project schemes to ones suitable for your newly selected project type (or other schemes that work better)
