Hi Kim,

Is the risk form something custom created by your admins, or is it from a product you bought on the marketplace?

kind regards,

Risk Register by ProjectBalm

I am the admin, i am using the risk register cloud purchased through Atlassian

Hi Kim,

Which risk app? Is it Risk Register by ProjectBalm? If so, please submit a support request using the below link and we will get someone to look at it as soon as possible.

Hi @Kim ,

In next-gen Jira Software, the default issue types are Story, Task, Bug and Epic. To configure a Risk issue type, you'll need to add a new issue type:

  1. Navigate to your next-gen project.
  2. Select Project settings.
  3. Select Issue types.
  4. Select Add issue type.

Hope that helps!

repeatedly tried this but the risk option is not showing. I see it in the classic version and some pre-existing next gen projects but not new ones that i create today.

@kim you can't share any configuration (yet) with next-gen projects - so if you already have a risk issue type configured from before then this cannot be used in next-gen. You need to create a new issue type in each next-gen project and rename it to "Risk" (or whatever you want).

Creating issue types in next-gen takes a fraction of the time compared with classic.

Let us know if this isn't the case and you are still having an issue.

This is consistent with the help provided by @Craig Schwarze which while not being as simple as would be desired, at least offers a path forward.

thanks for the follow up 

The Risk Register add-on lets you specify the risk issue type on a per-project basis. Look for the 'Risk Register' tab in your project settings.

@Kim ,

If you are an admin in the project, you can create your own issue type in the project.

You may refer the below document for better understanding.

I am the admin, but when i create a new project in the next-gen format, the "risk" issue type is not available in the options list
