When creating item - Change workflow Initial Status from "backlog"






Is there a way for me to choose a different option than "backlog" when opening an item in JIRA?


by default - it chooses backlog. how can i change default to a different step in workflow (for example: "Doing")

Also,and impornat just as much - can i add the possibility in creation pop up of the item?


Thank you

Hi @Tsah Barnea ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

First status is not selectable and it depends for the related issue workflow. (Here how to edit it

If you want to have DOing as first step, please edit your workflow so that Doing is the destination step for creation action.

Hope this helps,
