How do I modify the workflow of a project?

We have an existing, new project. I have project administrator role.

Under Project / Administer / Workflow, I see a description of our default workflow, but no Edit button.

I need to edit the workflow.

You need "System Administrator" to edit or copy workflows except for editing via JIRA Agile which allows some simple editing without SysAdmin.

With Sys Admin, select Issues/Workflows from the main menu, see the default version (no Edit option) and do a Operation/Copy, rename accordingly.

Create a new Schema that associates the desired issues to the new workflow.

Create the states you like now as you'll be limited later

Associate the project you're interested in with the new Schema

Fine tune the transitions as desired. (limited ability to edit states)

You cannot edit the default workflow in Jira.

Create a copy of the default workflow, put it into a new workflow scheme, and associate your project(s) with the new workflow scheme. You'll then have the option to edit the workflow (bear in mind that editing of active workflows is limited)

Great. That's sounds right. I'm working on getting the permissions I need above "Project Administrator"

Thanks.

Thanks. That was the help I needed.
