Jira database question

Hi All,

we have a Jira with Postgres DB.

We need to change the screen scheme for 130 projects which would be too much effort via the GUI one-by-one.

Is it possible to change the screen schemes in DB?

You should be able to update the screen schemes using back end approach.

  • Test this approach successfully on the test JIRA env. DB first.
  • Make sure you backup the JIRA before handling Live JIRA DB
  • Shut down JIRA during modifying the database.
  • Restart and re-index JIRA after modifying the database.

Have a look at the below links before taking this approach
