The Rank field is a Jira Software field that's locked by default. It is, however, possible to unlock this field. Check out this KB: Translating JIRA Agile Custom Fields. After unlocking the field we're able to do pretty much whatever we want. That means, we can rename the field. Not translate, but rename.
- Jira 7.4.3
- Unlock Rank field using this KB article: Translating JIRA Agile Custom Fields.
- Rename the field from Rank to Rang (German version).
- Try to start a relative session.
Relative session is started.
Issues never finish loading and we get a 400 bad request error message in the logs because the field Rank couldn't be found.
Change the name of the field back to 'Rank' (original) and then use the translate function provided by Jira to translate the field instead of renaming it.
If you keep the original field Rank and just translate it to German (Rang), then everything works as expected. The problem only happens when you rename the field. That's because the name of the field is hardcoded: https://bitbucket.org/spartez/jpp-ng/src/c937a9f9a34558622e34e052f2da85effae0ebf5/pokerng-frontend/src/commons/issues-selector/issueSelectorModule.js?at=master#lines-13.
