That looks like you have some javascript trying to do something with priority as you go for an edit. Have you done anything with javascript (or a plugin that uses javascript)?

i performed intergirty check once and it looks that problem has appeared after that only.

he is asking, did you used any javascript function on priority field?

just diable any javascript plugin if you used then check this behaviour

The integrity check would have no effect on the way the priority field works.

Something looks like it is interfering with the field during the edit process, so you need to find and fix that.

It looks like the order in which the validation is being performed is wrong.

Be careful with the word "validation" here - Jira has validators which do validation. This problem is occurring BEFORE validation occurs

There was some error in the coding on Priority filed. I checked with developer of out tool and the problem is rectified.

So I was right? You've coded something in javascript which breaks it?

Yes Nick, You were correct, i was having hard ticket to go through the coding.

Than it would be fair to mark Nics answer as correct...



Is it possible to validate Priority field to be allowed to have only "crirtical"  value in the list when creating issue , i.e 


Example :

Issue wud be allowed to create for particular Priority value
