Can you create a custom template for Epics, stories and bugs

Hi there :)


We are recently working with Atlassian Jira and I was wondering if it is possible to create completely new templates for epics. stories and bugs

We have standard templates but I was wondering if I can create a new template which can be used by a special team.

For example:

New EPIC screen template should show these fields

- *Project
- *Issue Type
- *Epic Name
- *Summary
- Component
- *Reporter
- Assignee
- *Description
- Attachment
- Due Date
- Externe support ID

hello @Janice_Lunes ,

yes, it is possible. 
you will have to dive into the basics of Jira administration and check the issue screen schemes:


Hi Robert,


Thank you so much for your quick reply :) 

I was checking the schemes but when I change someting there add more fields to be visible for the epics for example this would mean that all people using epics can see this right?


Not all teams want to have these extra options


hope you can advise :)

hello @Janice_Lunes .

You have to create a new scheme that only applies to your project and not change the default one. 

In Jira, you can have a shared configuration (i guess that what you have) or a specific configuration template for a specific project.
You have a scheme for almost everything that you can configure for a project: 

  • issues
  • workflows
  • screens
  • notifications
  • priority (server)
  • security levels
  • etc.
