Administration -> Priorities
Administration -> Statuses
In both cases, you'll be offered "edit icon" links and you can select your own (including remote icons). I like changing the "bug" icon to something that looks like it's got six legs and wings :-) I quite like one of my old clients who changed their priorities to number icons (1 in red, 2 in amber, 3 in blue, etc), and another lot who changes them to smiley faces - shock and horror for the top priority, and a non-committal "meh" face for trivial stuff.
Bear in mind the changes are global - once a bug is a bug icon, it's an insect throughout your Jira
If you want to use other icons, then you have to place them somewhere that your Jira can see and use them. I use an image repository we have on the same network as our Jira (because I can check them into source control and know they'll be updated automatically shortly afterwards), but if you want them to be served up by Jira (which is probably the best approach because icons inside Jira are always going to be available), then you'll need to recompile the application .war or .ear to include them.
I know where to do it in JIRA and the fact that I can use the built in ones in JIRA, but my boss doesn't like the ones that JIRA provides - feels they don't describe the Priority. How do I find the URLs for icons? I see how I can download them.
Is is possible for JIRA to place the icons on their server that I access?
