How to make project admin or lead to choose project category?

I see that only Jira admin can edit project categories now. I want to know how to enable the project admins or leads to choose the project category for their projects. Please advise. Thank you.

Hi @Jason Liu 👋

To change Project Category, you have to be a member of a group, which do have Permission of Jira Administrator or Jira System Administrator.

Other members have had this issue and have raised a ticket if you would like to vote/watch the progress of the feature:

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,


Hi Laura,

Is there any other way to let project admin to tag their projects category or projects status?
