Next-gen how to change board name?

I'm the owner of a next-gen board and it does not let me edit its name.

How do I do that?


at /secure/ManageRapidViews.jspa

I don't see the "..." button to change it.

Hi @Guilherme.motta ,

The next-gen project does not have a separate board name, it is consistent with the project name, you can modify it in the project settings.


Hi Oly,

That is not true in my instance.

I want to rename where it says MTP board. How do I do it?

Please check below:

same screen as yours Jira.pngboard screen jira.png

Hi @Guilherme.motta ,

Please confirm that whether you have the administrator permission for the MTP board?

Hi @Ollie Guan_携程 

Yes, I am an administrator and I created this board.

MTP was: Motta Test Project

But now, I don't want it to keep that name..

Hi @Guilherme.motta ,

I am not sure if I understand what you mean.

You have changed the project name to XXX Eng Team, but the name of the project is still displayed as MTP?

Hi Ollie, what you described is correct.

I would expect the board to no longer show "MTP" given I changed its project name..

But it does..


My question is:

Is there any way I can possibly rename "MTP" for good?

Hi @Guilherme.motta ,

Have you ever tried rebuilding the index after modifying the project name?

I asked support for help with this, and Gino Sandoval Purata replied with this incredibly useful answer, so I thought I'd share. The third method allows you to rename a board even while you've got an ongoing sprint but deactivating and reactivating the Sprint feature in project settings.

When a sprint has not been started what you see is the board and you can rename it as it is shown in the next video.

When a Sprint is in progress what you see is the Sprint name, the way to change its name is as shown in the next video.

The workaround to change the name of the board while a sprint is active is by disabling first the sprint feature as is shown in the next video.

Vids don't work for me...
