What issue types are available in a Jira Agile project by default ? 

 

Is it ?

Epic, Story, Task, Bug, and Subtask

OR

  • 'Epic'
  • 'Story'
  • 'Technical Task' (sub-task)

 

I can't see anywhere in the help that this is explained or documented ......

Depends on the project type, and version of JIRA Agile/Software.  In the JIRA I'm looking at though:

Scrum and Kanban:

  •  Bug
  •  Task
  •  Sub-task
  •  Story
  •  Epic

Simple development:

  •  Bug
  •  Task
  •  Sub-task
  •  Improvement
  •  New Feature
  •  Epic

Remember these are just defaults by project type.  There's no harm in changing them to what you need.

Thanks - I just couldn't believe this isn't documented anywhere !
