Possible to rename a Project Category?

We had an org rename and so all of the projects that were tagged to Project Category 'Foo' should ideally be retagged to Project Category 'Bar' - since there are a ton of projects involved I was wondering if it'd be possible to just rename 'Foo' to 'Bar' instead of having to go and update each project individually

Open up the Project Categories admin view (https://[yourInstance].atlassian.net/secure/admin/projectcategories/ViewProjectCategories!default.jspa) and click Edit. 

Thank you - I have no idea how to find that coming in through the top page but I guess there's a way. smile


Well, you have to be an administrator, first of all.

There are two ways:

  • Press g + g anywhere in JIRA, it will open the quick search window. Write Project Categories and press Enter
  • Open up the Settings menu (Cog icon next to your username in the top right corner), select Projects under the heading JIRA Administration and then Project categories is available in the left sidebar.
