I can't edit workflows once they are created.
I want to add remove status's so I don't see a bunch of irrelevant ones.
How can I do this, it keeps on saying I need to disable the workflow but I don't know how to get there.
JIRA doesn't allow you to remove statuses from a workflow that's 'active' or being used by a project. To get around this:
I would start by reading this - https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/workflows-780868207.html. And there are other good pages on workflows on Atlassian's site.
There are limitations of what you can do to workflows when they are active (assigned to projects). I recommend the following approach:
1) make a copy of the workflow
2) edit the copy and change the name to whatever you want, e.g. 'workflow' v2 or other
3) in the project you want to associate the new workflow with go to the project settings and issue types and then add the workflow and associate specific (all?) issue types with the new workflow
hope this helps
Hi @Claudia, the above answer should work. If it doesn't you've run into a system error.

Are you a whiz at handling tickets and looking at how you can further optimize your workflow with automation? Do you tackle detailed customer support questions while simultaneously getting flooded wi...
