This is a broken requirement really.

Issue types should change rarely, when you realise there's a mistake, or an over/under-estimate.  They should never be part of a process.

Changing issue type in Jira is not a simple process, you have to go through a series of checks to make sure it is not going to break anything, and then change a whole load of structural stuff underneath it.

What is the logic behind changing the issue type?
