How to configure the Issue Type dropdown when search an issue?

Tetiana I'm New Here Aug 21, 2022
I'm on Search All Issues page (within current Project). I click Type dropdown (to select specific type of issue). How can I manage the default view of STANDARD ISSUE TYPES in this dropdown? E.g., I'd like to add 'Story' type in the list of STANDARD ISSUE TYPES and remove 'Initiative' type? 
Thanks in advance!

Hello @Tetiana ,

Nice avatar!, so This are the steps to perform what you ask, as stated above, you will need to be a Jira admin in order to do this but I think it's good you understand what needs to be done. 

I simulated your case in a project, as you can see I don't have the Story Issue Type set:


Go to your Project settings (need to be project admin for this):


In the left panel go to Issues -> Types


Here go to Actions -> Edit issue Types ( need to be Jira Admin for the next part)


Drag the Issues from Available to Current Scheme as per your requirements and then save it.


You will now see the Issue type on the Issue Type Scheme used by the project and on the issue search.Screenshot_6.jpgScreenshot_7.jpg

Hopes this clarify your questions, have an awesome day.

Hi @Nicolas Tagle ! Thank you so much, it was very helpful!

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The dropdown is listing the types available in the project.  To add Story, you will need to add the Story issue type to the project's issue type scheme so the project can use it.  To remove initiative, remove it from the project's sscheme.

Hi @Tetiana welcome to the community.  To modify the issueTypes you'll need jira admin privileges and then modify the issueTypes scheme within the project.
