Priority Color configuration will not change the color of a priority's text or icon
Changing the Priority Color setting using the following process for a given Priority does not change the test and/or icon color:
- JIRA Administration -> Issues -> Priorities.
- Click on edit on any priority.
- Change the color.
This is working by design. The Priority Color setting is not related to text or icon color.
You can not change the color of the priority icon or text. The icon uses a *.icon* or static image file.
The Priority Color field is, to certain extent, misleading. It is used to in the Projects Dashboard Gadget to demonstrate the percentage of issues created within that project of a certain priority as per this screenshot:
