I have modified the workflow for all types.
Some of my older issues will not allow me to use the transitions I have defined, but rather are giving me only the options from previous versions of the workflow.
Does anyone know how to get them to "see" the new workflow?
Hi @Ron Judenberg,
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
When you created the new version of your workflow, did you do that from a copy of the existing one or did you make your changes directly in it? If the latter, try and make a copy of your current workflow, rename it, and then go to your workflow scheme and replace the existing workflow with the new copy.
Additionally it doesn’t really make sense that some older issues work one way while newer issues work a different way. More likely the situation is that you have different issuetypes and different workflows associated to those issuetypes. Go to project settings > workflows and check what workflows you have associated to which issuetypes. And make sure that you have the desired workflows associated to those issuetypes.
In addition to what Mikael and Jack mentioned, you should also check if your "older issues" is in the same project where you have applied/published the new WF or not. It is because each project can have its own custom WF scheme. Therefore, you will need to update the appropriate WF scheme to utilize your new WF design too.
so we learned the problem is happening with in one team-managed project, for the same issue type across all issues and there is no difference in affected issues, just probably their age.
I am wondering if this is happening for other users (and/or on a different PC, perhaps a different browser) as well.
In other words: all issues configured so they have the same workflow there should be not difference be visible in workflow's behaviour, just depending on the issue's age. This is why I think this could be a client related problem (browser foremost).
