First, I'm assuming that the project you're trying to create in includes the issue type you've changed. (In other words, the problem isn't that you're not seeing the issue type at all, it's that you're seeing the old name and old icon, right?)
Assuming this is correct, have you tried a reindex? I haven't personally experienced this problem, but that's what I'd try.
Please keep in mind a reindex will either make your app temporarily unavailable (if you choose the "lock and rebuild" type) or may impact performance (if you choose the "background" type.) You'll want to do this after peak use hours.
Please let us know if this solves the problem. I'm interested in the final solution.
Thank you for your response! Reindex doesn't work. The only workaround is JIRA restart or opening issue types scheme, edit, and save without any changes. I always feel silly to do it :)
Editing issue type use to work without any problems before, I just think it should be fixed...We use JIRA 7.2.7.
This doesn't sound like a "known issue" I can find, and changing the names of issue types worked fine for me on JIRA 7.2.
I suspect there's something interfering with the edits - could you have a look at the log files to see if there are errors happening around the time you are making the edits?
