Basically, within a team-managed project, I want tasks and sub-tasks to follow other workflows than story and epic.
While editing the workflows themselves is not a problem, at the step above on when I'm ask for which of these issues types I want to copy / apply my changes to, I'm unable to (de)select any of them - hence, I would either apply my change to all or none of the listed issue types, which... yeah, isn't my intention.
Within a mouseover on the listed issue types above, the cursor changes to a prohib sign preventing input as described beforehand. Can't find any restrictions on my user within the project. Current JIRA cloud version is used, experienced within chrome & firefox browser in their current version.
Am I possibly missing another local restriction or is an issue type-wise definition on workflows currently just disabled?
Thanks in advance.
This is not available yet for Team-managed projects. You can use a separate workflow for Epics from other types but that’s it right now. They are working on providing multiple workflows based on the issue types though. Hopefully soon.
Well that's a really good question. When I first read this I was wondering if it was slowly being rolled out and that may be the case. I tried to use this article to see if I could create a separate workflow for my epic and was unsuccessful. When I got to step five in the article there were no Drop down.
Rather I was presented wit the following scree and I could not deselect any of them. What I find interesting here is the first sentence would seem to imply that the workflow changes well apply to all four issue types. The next sentence tells you to select the issue type you want to copy the workflow to. Maybe it's just me but this seems very confusing. In any event I ultimately could not select only the epic to apply the changes. I'm going to reach out to Atlassian colleagues to see if I can get a firm answer on this. I will report back here once I get something.
