How can I change the status when an issue is created?

I'd like to use a status other than "Open" when a new issue is created. How can I do that?

Thanks.

Edit the workflow, find "open" and you'll be able to see the "create" transition. Edit that, and you can change the endpoint. Or, you can associate a different status with the "Open" step

Thanks Nic !!! I've been struggling with the admin aspects in jira.

Hi Glenn,

To tag an issue with something other then Open, you need to create a Workflow Scheme (or edit the default one).

You can read about it here https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+workflow+schemes

Solution from Nic worked like a charm. Thanks.
