Hi, a colleague somehow managed to change the Done status of all active and inactive workflows, in one go, to some custom status XYZ.
She can't tell how she did it (it may have happened after adding a new workflow).
I'd like to know if there's any way to reverse this operation and put the Done status back in place instead of XYZ?
Maybe. Can't recall if I tried or not. However, being used to add another comment on a Jira ticket and seeing this behavior in many answers I read here gives the feeling it should be ok to add a reply. In any case, "You are not permitted to perform this operation" is a poor poor way to help me understand what to do.
Thanks @Ignacio Pulgar, but this is not a name changing issue. This new custom status magically took the place of the built-in "Done" status in all schemes.
For example, looking at the "Closed" status (which has a similar role to our "Done" status) in the default JIRA workflow, it is being linked from all other statuses. The change I'm talking about caused the "Closed" status to be replaced with "XYZ" such that now "XYZ" is linked from all the other statuses.
She said that JIRA asked at some point if to perform an operation in all schemes (or something like that) and this caused the replacement to occur in over 20 schemes (backup copies included).
Phill - I agree with Ignacio Pulgar's answer.
@Ignacio Pulgar: You da man!
Eventually the status was indeed renamed from Done to XYZ. The reason why it was hard to identify it was that a new Done status was created. This is just part of the Comedy of Errors that's been going on. I guess I chose the wrong week to be on vacation
Thanks for the advice. You saved me a lot of hassle.
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 ...
