I'm not sure what the question is here - Jira is an issue tracker, designed for capturing information about issues and allowing you to update it. So the answe is Yes. I'm not sure what else I can tell you - go into the issues and click edit. If there's no option to edit, then talk to the project owners/admins because you need more access which they can arrange.
(Note, I'm guessing that you're using Jira, if not, then could you explain which application it is?)
