I wish to create multiple team-managed projects all with the same workflow. How do I copy a workflow from one project to another? Ideally this would be via the GUI but if I need to use an API then that's OK.
Googling suggests this isn't possible and I need site admin status and company-managed projects to achieve this. However, this strikes me as pretty basic functionality so I'm hoping that this is not correct. Can anyone confirm?
Team-managed projects do not really have workflows as distinct objects, they have a set of rules defined by the team that owns it.
There's no export/import or sharing of these rules because the project belongs to a single team and the whole point of a team managed project is that it dedicated for that team. If you want to enforce the same process across several teams, use a company-managed project.
Well my team will have multiple similar projects and we'd like to apply those rules to each project in the same way. If we have to do this manually each time then it is painful and prone to slight deviations. We have got company-managed projects but as our company is large it is cumbersome to try to manage a set of workflows to keep all teams happy. It also means that for me to set up a new company-managed project requires raising a ticket with our IT dept, thereby slowing the process.
Thank you for the confirmation that there is no way to achieve this for a team-managed project. I disagree with the design thinking behind it, but appreciate you taking the time to respond.
