User Story - IssueType

I am using JIRA 6.0.5 . The default issue types are 

1) Bug

2) Improvement

3) New Feature

4) Task

5) Sub-task

After i added Zephyr for JIRA plugin , a new issue type 6) Test has beed added to the default types ....

Is there any issue type named User Story ?? Cause i saw this issue type in JIRA v 6.2 and not in  JIRA v 6.0.5 ?

Each different plugin that you install has the capability to add additional functionality to your JIRA installation. Zephyr, for example, is a testing tool that adds a issue type to help manage tests.

The Epic, User Story and Technical Task (subtask) issue types are added automatically when you install the JIRA Agile plugin. You can, of course, create issue types such as these yourself - but they won't have the same functionality, default screens, workflows, etc, that they would have if they were added via installing the related plugin.


Hope that helps.


Thanks a lot , got the point :)
