you assign a workflow to an issue type via the workflow scheme

Best regards


You have to go to Admin section, the tab 'Issues' and the Item 'WorkFlow'. This should bring you to the WorkFlow configuration screen where you have the tab 'WorkFlows' and the tab 'WorkFlow scheme'.

In the bottom of the tab 'WorkFlow scheme' you have the option to create a new WorFlow Scheme, then you can configure the new Scheme asigning workflows to the different issue types.

Oh, and this is a Jira matter :-)

Hope this helps too!
