Workflows are independent of each other, so editing a transition in one workflow won't impact other workflows.
You should note that a workflow might be used by more than one issues type / project, though, so check the workflow schemes to see where it is being used.
If you change a status name it will affect all workflows it is used in.
We had configured separate workflows for different projects in our Jira (Cloud). We had also configured separate schema thereby ensuring one project doesn't impact other.
Over the last week we had added custom fields and Workflow transitions in one project. We noticed that this impacted the other projects. Note that both projects have separate schema and no change was done in Default schema or default workflow.
Yet, there was an impact. Other workflows were getting the same validations for fields that is not configured to their screens or workflow transitions.
We want to understand what caused this so that we can be careful in applying future changes. We checked audit log and it didn't provide any information for this problem. Please let us know how we can understand the problem.
Can you give some more information of what the 'validations' were? I think you'll need to be more specific to help the community answer.
Were they "Field x is required" type messages?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
