Where is the bug issue type?

I have just got a trial JIRA cloud instance. I have used JIRA before a couple of years back. I created projects and users. But, I can't figure out where the "bug" issue type is in JIRA now? There's only task, sub task and epic.

How do I create a bug in JIRA cloud?

Hi Mackie,

Issue Type is Controlled through Issue Type Scheme. May be template you selected for new project only contains Task, sub-task and Epic. Edit Issue Type Scheme and add issue type called Bug to it then you will be able to create Bug issue in JIRA.

Hi Mackie,

JIRA doesn't have default issue types any more.
Issue types are now created when Projects are created.
Bug issue type is created when a Software project is created and that project type is available with JIRA Agile.

You can create your own issue types and associate them on a Workflow Scheme for having bugs, features and other issue types associated to your projects.
