What is the old Status name after renaming it

Hi Experts,

 

I am new to JIRA. I have renamed a status name in copy of existing workflow and unfortunately it impacted all the projects. I need to revert all the status back to old status name as it was before. Could you advise if we have any way to track the changes and what was the exact old name ? I checked the audit log and granularity was not to that extent to capture these chnages

For global reporting purposes, statuses are global constructs.

The easiest way to find the old name would be to navigate to an old workflow that used the status, looking at the Text Editor, and looking at the step name. The step name should have remained the old name.

Thanks Steven for your time for responding. I went through the OLD workflows and could see the same status name. Should the step name and Linked status name should be same ?  Any other way to track the changes done ?

I'm afraid that if it's not in the audit log, the old status name is not captured.  If you've any copies of old reports or downloads, you might have it in there, and if you have a recent backup from before the name change, it will be in there too, but it's not captured in the main system.
