"Critical" priority's description not updated


I changed the description of "Critical" priority. It shows up correctly in Admin->View Priorities. But when I create/edit an issue and click on the little question mark, the description shown for "critical" priority is always "Crashes, loss of data, severe memory leak."

Other priorites do not have this problem.

Hello SumTime,

This is currently a bug in JIRA, being tracked at the following link:https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-28051

To show the customized description, please change the priority name to don't match the default ones.

I hope this information helps! :)

What version of JIRA are you running?


Im running 5.1.2


If you intentionally misspell the word Critical using a capital I where the L should be it will appear correctly to the naked eye.
