General

Learn how to add a category and description to your templates.

Here is what you can configure in the General tab (scroll down to see descriptions of every field):

Issue Templates for Jira - Template Navigator
Issue Templates for Jira - Template Navigator
  1. Template name
    The summary you provided while creating the template will automatically become your template’s name. You can change it if you wish, in order to easily find it later.

    Note

    Please remember that the property called Template name is not the same as the template’s Summary (which is a Jira field). If you’d like them to be the same, you need to edit both.

  2. Category
    You can add a category that will help you group your templates within the Template Repository and have a better overview of them. It proves to be very useful for larger repositories, especially since there is a dedicated display mode for it.

  3. Template description

  4. Description for administrators
    If you don’t want everyone to see the template description, switch on the toggle and add a separate description for administrators.
