This feature lets you modify the attributes of multiple issues at one time. This feature allows you to edit the following types of operations:
- Edit Issues
- Move Issues
- Transition Issues
- Delete Issues
- Watch Issues
- Stop Watching Issues
First, under the Issues pull-down, use the Search for Issues to refine the search results so that you can see all the issues you would like to edit.
From the top-right corner, click on the Tools button and then under Bulk Change, select the all X issues link
From here you will follow a four step process:
Choose the issues you want to edit. Selecting the top checkbox will select all issues in the view.
Next, choose the operation you want to perform. You can choose between Edit, Move, Transition, Delete, Watch, or Stop Watching.
Note: You'll need the appropriate project-specific and/or workflow permissions to make these changes
Next, select the Operation Details. On this step you'll select the modification you want done. These modifications will depend on the operation you selected in the previous step.
Note: Uncheck the "Send mail for this update" unless you really want to send a message for the operation.
Next, the last step is the confirmation. This step confirms everything.
