Where is a chart of the meanings of the icons in Jira?  I have no idea what a red square with a circular hole means, for example.

Hi Brian, 

you can watch all of your icons and types by following admin url:


There you have to edit one of the types


Then you should be able to choose an image:



Then you'll be able to see each type and referenced image.

Hope this helps. 


Thank you!


There is no way I ever would have found that using help menus.

You're welcome Brian. I only knew because i had to search for it a time ago. :) Cheers, Mario
