Hey Martin - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can't rename it. But you can copy it and rename the copy to what you want. Then you will need to switch out the new one for the old one in the Workflow Scheme. 

How do I rename the copy ? :p

John Funk Community Leader Jan 05, 2022

You should have been able to rename it when you created the copy. 

@John Funk 

Is there any risk, after this process, to have any colateral effect on other configuration?
Example, the post functions configuration, will me transferred to the new Copied/New workflow after i switched out to it?

There shouldn't be. Workflows do not include the name of the workflow in the details of the post function. When you copy the Workflow, it will copy the post functions along with it.

You can change workflow name when it is "inactive" status. 

If your workflow does not apply for any project it will become inactive. 

So you can remove it from applied projects then add them again after changing the name.
