How do I edit Priorities without breaking existing filters

I want to add the P0 to P3 to my existing Priority descriptions but If I update them it seems to break existing Filters

How can I bulk edit everyones existing filters and dashboards to use the new Priorities so I can change Blocked to P0 - Blocked.

 Please note we have thousands of existing issues and probably thousands of existing Filters

There is no way to do that in the user interface. You will have to write some SQL scripts to do a bulk replace in database I am afraid!

Another option is to take an XML backup, change it in the backup and restore the new backup. Not worth the trouble in my opinion!

thanks for the quick response.


how will I do. the priority option   to project 

did you have any luck with this?

we want to change our Priority 'Name' from 'Highest' to '1-Highest', ... 'Lowest' to '5-Lowest'.

but worried it will break other projects?

No change - if you change the names of priorities, you can still break filters, which in turn will break boards.

You'll need broken filters to be fixed by their owners.
