Configure priorities for projects

An issue's priority defines its importance in relation to other issues, so it helps your users determine which issues should be tackled first. Jira comes with a set of default priorities: Highest, High, Medium, Low, and Lowest. You can modify these default priorities, create new ones, and add them to different projects by associating these priorities with project priority schemes. 

You must be logged in as a user with Administer Jira global permissions. For details on how permissions are set up in Jira, see Permissions overview
