Its relatively straight-forward. Try something like this for JIRA 6:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.config.FieldConfigScheme;

itsm = ComponentAccessor.issueTypeSchemeManager;

for (scheme in itsm.allSchemes) {
    // 1. get the scheme we want to edit
    if ( == "old scheme name") {
        // 2. edit our scheme
                new FieldConfigScheme.Builder(scheme)
                        .setName("new scheme name")


I didn't test my code. So, try to run it in a test-system first, just in case. :)

Can you tell me same for renaming Workflows , Field Configurations & Screen Scheme ?

Thanks in advance.!
