Editing group names is currently a beta feature, here’s some things to keep in mind:

  • You can’t edit the name of a group if it's used within some Jira administration settings or if it has a restricted or protected name. Some group name changes could have an impact on your apps.

  • If you edit a group name associated with a Jira Cloud automation rule, the rule will stop working.
