By default Jira doesn't have a severity field, it uses priority.

You can add severity as a custom filed, type drop-down single select.

BR, Olga

Shall I use the priority values 1,2,3,4,5 as severity? which is available in the priority column in  jira_issue table ?

You can use whatever suits you. It's a custom field, use something everyone will understand.

For example

S1 - Critical

S2 - Major

S3 - Moderate

S4 - Low





Sev 0

Sev 1

Sev 2





BR, Olga


I have taken stringvalue column in customfieldvalue  table.

Thank you for your help.
