Edit a Transition for all project and workflows

So we want to set the remaining estimate to 0 when any issue is transitioned to Done. I can do that on any single workflow, but when we have 20+ projects it gets tedious. How can we edit the default done Transition so that all work flows are effected?

Why do you not use one workflow for your 20 projects? In this case you would make a change only once.

jira automatically creates a new workflow for each project from what I can see, from some default workflow.

You can change the project workflow scheme after the project was created or you can use Create With Shared Configuration. In this case the new project will have the same schemes like the parent project. 

It does, but you can change the projects to use a single shared workflow, or set of workflows, or have groups of them.  (E.g. one set of workflows for developer projects, another for support, another for non-IT projects etc)

Create (or find) a workflow scheme that maps the workflows you want to use repeatedly.

Go to each project you want to share it with, go to project admin, find the workflow section and change the scheme to the one you have chosen.  It may ask you to migrate if the schemes make status different, but it walks you through it.
