How do you change Priority Scheme in Jira Cloud?

I am attempting to change the icons associated with Priorities in Jira.  I want the changes to only apply to a specific project.  I have reviewed existing documentation that points to changing/modifying the Priorities Scheme but I can't find that menu selection under issues.

I have site administration privileges and have also asked the org admin/site admin to see if he can find it.

Is this something only available in the server version?

How can this be done?

Hello @Ray Buchalter

This option to set priority scheme per project is only an option for the server version of Jira. This option is currently under consideration for Jira Cloud. See the link below.

If you are ok changing the priority icons globally, then you can go to Jira Settings, then Issues, then Priorities.


Does this answer your question?

This answers the question, however it does not currently provide a solution.


Maybe add a comment to the request linked above...that may move it up from "under consideration".  That's what I just did.  :^)

Like V R Ravinuthala likes this

The issue linked above was created in 2004 with zero movement. I believe it is safe to say that Atlassian has no interest in providing features that people are interested in.

Hello Team

Do we have any solution of this point ?

We have occue same behavior during our test migration from server to Cloud 

¨Please advice

we migrated from jira server to cloud because atlassian sent us an email about support server license closure.


It's a bit strange that you force us to migrate to a service with less features....


Anyway, do you have news? no solution to this ticket since 2020 :O

We have a project that requires very specific issue priorities as part of our service delivery. These priority levels do not make sense for our other projects. The lack of feature parity with cloud should be corrected, please.
