I have a question, till now I did no find a way to solve it. I want to customize the drop down list of the issues, I mean the drop down under "more". In my case I want to move "Clone" to the top of the dropdown, after "Log work" on Epic, Task & Sub tasks.
Furthermore in our Epics if we select --> More, there is the possibility to "create sub task". I want to remove this "create sub-task" from the drop down and replace it with "create task".
Thank you in advance for your answers.
to reorder "Clone" you need to edit atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/system-issueoperations-plugin.xml: change weight of operations-operations web-section and clone-issue web-item inside the section.
Don't forget to reload JIRA instance after these changes.
<web-item key="clone-issue" i18n-name-key="webfragments.view.issue.opsbar.operations.ops.clone" name="Clone this issue" section="operations-operations" weight="20">
Yes, if you upgrade, your changes will be removed by the process, and need re-applying. And they might not be in the same place in the next release.
Also bear in mind that even a minor change like this makes you technically unsupported. Atlassian will try, but they've every right to say "pull out your customisations before we go any further"
Personally, I wouldn't do the "create task" change as it reduces the clarity of the link (tasks in a lot of JIRA installations are not sub-task types, but issue level).
But it is a language thing, you can open up the i8n-langage.jar file, find and replace occurences of the word "sub-task" and repackage it up as a new or replacement language file.
