How to find the Transition IDs for setting up GitLab integration

The documentation for this from GitLab is below.

(excerpt from this-- GitLab's documentation on Jira integration) .

The bold text is the point of my question as I do not understand where in Jira you would "mouse over the link for the transition." It does not do this in the Workflow view (diagram or text). 

Obtaining a transition ID

In the most recent Jira user interface, you can no longer see transition IDs in the workflow administration UI. You can get the ID you need in either of the following ways:

  1. By using the API, with a request like using an issue that is in the appropriate “open” state
  2. By mousing over the link for the transition you want and looking for the “action” parameter in the URL

Hi Edwin,

Actually, you can go edit the workflow and choose the Text option instead of the Diagram option. You can see the transition ID there - it's usually a simple 3-digit number. 

Ah. I see the numbers in parenthesis. Thanks!! The obvious was right in front of me!
