Hello. I originally had a workflow shared between 2 projects. Then one of the project had to use a slightly different workflow (just 2 actions renamed). So I took a copy of the original workflow, called it different.
I now have 2 workflow schemes and 2 workflows.
Each of the project shares a single workflow now.
But, when I change something on one of the 2 workflows (doesn't matter which one, either the original or the copied one), the other one also changes.
Is this a known issue, or am I doing something wrong?
That does sound like a bug.
Provided your are just adjusting the workflow only and it’s not shared between the 2 projects(do confirm this again), then this behaviour you described shouldn’t happen.
I will suggest you:
If the behaviour persists after the above record it and raise a bug directly with Atlassian at https://getsupport.atlassian.com
ok, I just did these actions.
1. Copied Workflow1 and gave it a name
2. I now have Workflow 1 - Active and Workflow 2 - Inactive
3. Edit Workflow 2 - just change 1 status from Status 1 to Status 2
4. In both Workflow1 and Workflow 2, there is a Status 2
It doesn't matter where I change something (either in Workflow 1 or Workflow 2) but any changes will appear in both Workflow 1 and Workflow 2.
I think I will raise this with Atlassian, unless you think it will be best if I try the same in our old JIRA (not cloud) and see if I get the same behaviour?
