I'm trying to find the directory/file on the server where all my workflow definition XML files are stored, so that I can browse the XML to see some of my post-function information. Ultimately, I would like to be able to open the XML file(s), and make minor changes (correcting typos, etc) there all at once, instead of having to manually drill down into all the individual post-functions to make these changes in the application. But I cannot figure out where in the server they are stored.
Hi @Montana Fox
Don't do that it will break things but if you really have to then take a look at jiraworkflows table in your database.
Modifying database is only for rare cases when things go wrong and there is no other option. In your case bulk modifying post function and correcting typos is not a good justification.
In case you are still curious this page will give you some ideas: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-identify-workflow-diagram-in-jira-database-828769890.html
Also here is the link to the Jira database schema for making understanding the relations better: https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/database-schema/
I hope it helps.
