Removing priority field

I removed the priority field from some issue types in JIRA by changing the field configuration scheme, but it only seems to affect newly added issues for the greenhopper boards. Issues that were previously open show the priority field when looking at the greenhopper scrum/kanabna board, the arrows indicating priority still show up.

I think you have to remove the priority value of the existing issues, which is not possible through the UI.

You can use Script Runner plugin and write a script to remove the priority from all existing issues.

Thanks for the suggesting. I was able to remove all of the priorities (verified in the database), but the priorities still show up on the board...

After a database index, all is working. Thanks.

Can you please share the code you used to remove prioirity.

Beware that if you hide Priority in a field configuration, then most of the canned JQL queries in the project tab "Issues" will break.

Hi Henning, 

Can you please advise how did you use script runner plugin to remove priorities from some of the issue types?

I would like to remove them from 'test' and 'risk'

Thanks
