What Permission do I need to Edit a Business Project Workflow?


I am set up as an administrator for our system. 

I have gone to Project settings > workflows.

I can see the workflow that we have setup, but I am not seeing the pencil icon to edit the workflow like is mentioned in the help articles (should be where the pink box is)

What permission do I need and where do I go to have it added so that I can edit the workflow? Thanks!

Hi @Annie Lockwood  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Are you a project administrator for that project? 

And if so, is the workflow scheme for that project shared with other projects?

Hi @Annie Lockwood 

Welcome to the community.

Try going to Settings/Issues/Workflows and find the PO: Project management workflow (just like you would for a Software, company managed project), you should be able to copy/edit from there.

 I am not seeing that order of steps. Which Settings?? The one in the upper righthand corner? When i click that these are the options i get: Screen Shot 2022-03-28 at 5.22.59 PM.png

Right, in which case you can't edit the Workflow (don't have Admin permissions). You will have to get in contact with a Jira Admin and get them to make the changes.
