Two workflows in one scheme for one project?

Edited

Hello all! We are using our JIRA for both task management and bug tracking. I have currently got two workflows (development and bugs and issues) associated with one scheme (Development workflow scheme):

Is this a bad idea, generally speaking? I guess I'm wondering if it's better to have one scheme with 2 workflows or two schemes with 2 workflows, or if there is a better approach altogether.

I'm a bit confused all around about workflows vs schemes and how they interrelate but this is the result of what I achieved when trying to set up two different workflows for either bug tracking or task development. We want to keep tasks/bugs to the same project - it's the same team - but not necessarily in the same view. I am assuming this is the right way to go about it.

p.s yes I've read the documentation on this topic :)

There would be multiple workflows in a Scheme. every workflows will be associated with issue type and issue is associated with screen.

As per your requirement, you can have both workflows in a scheme with issue type, What you have to do is? you have to change the screen fields and workflow status as per the requirement so you will get different view.

You did right! you can make it more better :)

Oh great! So it's ok to have both workflows in the one scheme?  I guess I'm wondering if it's better to have one scheme with 2 workflows or two schemes with 2 workflows, or if there is a better approach altogether.

Otherwise, if this approach is fine, I can just customise screen fields and workflow status (the later of which I've done).

A workflow scheme tells a project what workflow to use for each type of issue that is in the project.

You can have one or many workflows in a scheme, and it's fine to have many schemes.  A project can only have one scheme though (as there's no sense in having many)

That makes sense, the scheme is more about the correlation between issue type/project and the workflows that relate to them all. Thank you!!
