10X: Configure Terminology

All major objects in Jira Align can be renamed to more closely match your processes, especially when working with external tools such as Jira, Team Foundation Server, or others. You can configure different terminology sets according to such frameworks as SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework), DAD (Disciplined Agile Delivery), and LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum), depending on what system your company uses. Or you can use the system default terminology.

You can configure general terminology used throughout the product, top menu terminology, date labels used for waterfall projects, release vehicle terminology, financial terminology, and terminology used on the person’s record page.

To configure terminology:

  1. Select Administration from the left menu bar, and then click Platform Terminology under Settings.
  2. From the Terminology Shown drop-down menu, select the terminology set you want to use.
  3. Edit the fields you want to change, and then click Update Terminology.
    Note: When updating the Currency and Finance terminology, click Update Currency or Update Finance accordingly.
  4. Under Customize Pyramid Display, select which areas to display in the pyramid.
    Note: To view the pyramid, go to Enterprise > Manage > Strategic Snapshot.
  5. Click Update Pyramid.
    Important: You must sign out and sign back in to see the updates.

To configure person record terminology:

  1. Select Administration from the left menu bar, and then click User Record Terminology under Settings.
  2. Edit the fields you want to change, and then click Update Terminology.
