Currently the only way I can see to edit a project key is to create a project, then edit the project key to change from the Jira auto-assigned default. The project board is then automatically named after the default key and results in annoying extra reconfiguring.
Is there a way to set the desired project key at project creation?
When you create a new project, Jira offers a suggestion of what the project key should be, but you should be able to click inside that project key field during project creation and change the suggested key to whatever you'd like.
I haven't encountered this issue in awhile (and can't recreate it right now to test), but I have encountered an issue where I couldn't change the project key during creation after I had entered the new project's name and the project key was auto-populated. If I recall the workaround I used, I believe I entered the project key first, then the project name. At little wonky, but I eventually got it to work.
