We tag JIRA issues with labels to make it easier to find related issues across projects.
One of the labels we use is the customer's name. Problem is that companies sometime change their name. Now to the question: How can we change the name of a JIRA label in use?
I don't want to go through all issues and update them manually so is there an easier way to simply rename an existing label?
We use JIRA Ondemand.
There's a decent "Bulk Modify" workaround:
This would typically require a backend database change, so I can think of 2 alternatives for OnDemand.
1) Submit a request to support. They may be willing to update the data table and reindex JIRA for you - https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/141323/is-it-possible-to-rename-a-label
2) Use the "Bulk Modify" feature to search for issues with "CompanyZ" and add the label "CompanyZee". This will remove all existing labels from those issues!
