From the project configuration page you can associate any of your already created workflows schemas to the project. 

The best approach would be creating as many different workflows as you need for the different issuetypes your project is going to have (maybe you have 3 issuetypes and 2 of them use the same workflow but the other type uses another one), then creating your workflow schema and then associate that schema to the project from the configuration page of the project itself.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

thank you.

But for example if i use an existing workflow for my project, how can i rename this workflow only in my project ? i would do this to avoid having N project sharing the same workflow ?

You must create as many workflows and workflow schemas as you need and then you must associate those to each project as you see fit.

If two projects share the same workflow schema will be just because you've configured the same schema for both of them...

I would try to use the same schema in as many projects as possible so any change in a workflow will propagate to every affected project. But of course only if it makes sense.

so it is not possible to rename a workflow in my project ?

From within any given project you can't do anything but to select the workflow schema the project must use.

If I have understanden correctly :

  • you have the same workflow schema associated to some projects
  • you want to make some changes to the workflow only in one of those projects, leaving the rest unaffected.

No, you can't do this from the project configuration screen itself. 

You should create as many new workflows as you need (you can clone the existing ones and then tweak them instead of having to start from a blank state), then create the workflow schema for your project, and then associate that to you project prom the project configuration screen.

Hi @Marine Tm 

This is an expected behaviour and depends on the type of project you create. When creating standard Business/Project Management projects, you’ll find that your project uses the default workflow.

However when you create Jira Software/Service Desk(now Service Management) projects, they each have a standard non shared workflow created specifically for them.

If you have a workflow in mind that you want to use and it’s is already used by another project and you are sure your project shares other configurations with this project, then when creating the new project, select create with shared configuration option in the initial project creation pop up.

Regards
