Hi guys

Tks a lot!

Hi Tony!


yeah.. but our plan is rename only the subtask's session name ...

it doesn't have impact in the issue type names.... issue types names are ok!


Our necessity would be rename the session in the issue view screen...

Are you trying to change how a subtask displays on its parent issue view screen to show a different name for the issue type?  If so, i don’t believe this is possible.  Jira is pretty straightforward with how on-screen entities, data, and links are displayed.  

There may be another solution to your issue but I have to admit that I don’t fully understand the need.

No, I dont want to change how the subtask display on the parent issue,

I want rename the session of subtasks...


attachment screenshot with the mark where I want rename. Only the session name.

Ahh, the section.  I see now and thank you for the helpful screenshot! 

Unfortunately, this is not configurable either other than to change the language used by the system and/or user.  You're stuck with "Sub Tasks" or the translated equivalent. 

ahh sorry for my English.

humm that's pitty! Ok, I understand.


Tks a lot for your attention, Tony!

Hey @Karla Karolina Cavalcanti de Lima e Silva and @Tony_Rossiter , I came across this question when researching similar topics. I thought that would be helpful to share an add-on that does a pretty good job with customizing sub-task headers, columns and sorting. Have a look at the Issue Matrix. It is always nice to mention that you will probably find other add-ons to address this use case.

I hope that helps,
