customize or rename priority labels

I would like to rename the labels for the priority levels from the default "highest, high, ..." to something more usefully descriptive like "ASAP, By End of Week, By End of Month, Eventually, Optional".  I can't find an option to do that, but there are so many options in so many (often intuitive) places that I often can't find things that I know are there, so it seems better to just ask instead of continuing to hunt for something that I'm not sure is even there.  Is this a option somewhere?

Assuming you are talking about JIRA.

You can do it if you are jira-administrator for JIRA. Here is the documentation that would help you.

JIRA Documentation

You can either translate the priorities or add new ones.


The change affects all JIRA projects though

Oh, that is potentially bad because there are going to be a few independent projects with different meanings behind their priority settings.  I guess it can still be done with multiple priority schemes encompassing all the ones people want, but it would be horribly annoying to have to scroll through 15 different priority tags to find the one I want. 

Do you know a way to change the priority labels that is project-specific?

There is an open request towards Atlassian.

You can also look at the plugin if this is too important for you. Coz its paid plugin.
