What is it about Priority and Severity in JIRA?


I was going to write a whole blog post on the fact that JIRA appears to be wrong with the default values for its Priority field (they’re not priorities, they’re severities). Dan Ashby, however, appears to have done a great job already so there’s no point.

Please just read his excellent article instead.
