I edited a JIRA Workflow and published it. Can I revert to the original?

In a rash attempt to standardise workflows, I edited an existing one, believing that it only impacted workflows related to bugs. 

Can i revert to the original version of the workflow, before I made changes?

Before publishing the workflow the system asks you to keep a backup copy of the old workflow.Assuming you took a backup then, that old workflow should be available in the workflows section and you can update the workflow scheme to use that old workflow.


It is unclear from your posting whether you published the workflow (by hitting the "Publish" button) or not. If have not yet published then you just need to discard the edited workflow and it will revert to the original. If you have published the workflow then follow the previous posters advice.
