Viewing Workflow in new view? Edit button missing

Is there a way to review the entire workflow in the new view the way you could in the old view? (Clicking view workflow, brings up splash screen)

And was the 'Edit' button removed? You use to be able to click edit and it would bring up a splash screen with all fields.

Are you a JIRA System Admin? Or do you have the Extended Project Administration?



I am a system Admin

You should be able to see the Edit Button to make changes to your workflows.

Are you clicking on the workflow by going to the project settings?



On the old view, the 'Edit' button would appear at the top of the page and if clicked would bring up a splash screen which would allow you to edit all fields on the card at once. On the new view, this edit button is not available. As for the workflows, on the old view, a hyperlink was available below the status field that would allow you to view the workflow as a diagram without going into the project settings. On the new view this is not available. You can only see the status field but the hyperlink is not available. 

Thank you so much for responding!

@Dominic Ruch  Do you want to switch back to the old view?

@Dominic Ruch  did you see my question? Do you want to switch back to old view?

Yes, please! Is there a way to permanently switch to the old view?

Click on your Avatar = (Profile) at the low left of your JIRA Screen -> Personal Settings -> Jira labs

Disable Jira Labs



This is great, thank you! Do you know if they will eventually 'force' us to use the new view?

@Dominic Ruch  I don't think they will force people to use the new view. It is a test, lot of users have been making comments about it and how much they don't like it.

So it looks like they are forcing everyone on the new view anyway. And this Edit button is quite important for me as well. 

Is there any way around this? We have lots of custom fields that you can view when clicking on the Edit button. With the new view, this is gone.
