Bulk edit issues in backlog Edited

I would like to bulk edit issues in the backlog view. For example i would like to change the assigned person for all selected issues at once. How can i do that?

Thanks!

Bulk edit is the way to go.

  • Go to the "Tool" gear at the top right of your issue search
  • Select Bulk Change
  • Select issue(s) to change
  • Select Edit
  • Select Change Assignee
  • etc...

Be aware there is also a "Send mail for this update" option box at the bottom of the select edit page. Use it wisely :)

I know this feature, but i do not want to switch context. I would like to do the bulk edit within the backlog view same like change multiple issues epic.

Specifically from the backlog view, the only way i am aware of would be to open issue search, then use the backlog status and board in the JQL query, i.e. project = project name AND status = backlog status name

In older versions i could right click on multiple selected issues and choose the bulk edit option.

Right click works great for me!  (My company is on 7.13)

Hi @Maximilian Leistner

 

it's possible to do this, you can simply follow this procedure and navigate to "How to move multiple issues".

 

Let me know if you have any questions,

Is there a solution to this? Just setup JIRA after 2 years of not using it and don't seem to be able to find a way to do this.
