Jira - issue type workflows seem to converge

Dimitrios I'm New Here Jun 20, 2022

Hello, need to understand why when setting up individual workflows for a team managed project issue types they all seem to converge, for example:

1. issue type task: to do -> in progress -> done

2. issue type issue: identified -> in progress -> fixed 

The end result is for both identified-> in progress -> fixed !

I do only update the relevant issue types.

is this a bug or something else?

can we not have separate issue type workflows?

Hi Dimitrios - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Team-managed projects are very much less flexible. Have you looked through this guidance yet?

Hello John, i have gone through the entire jira help and i also experienced something similar with company managed projects. 

I don't understand the flexibility issue. Its stated that you can do this yet apparently you cannot! So i assume this must be a bug but question is why?
