Multiple workflows in one issue



presently am using one work flow like this  created -> in progress -> done

now i want to change this workflow

Example  issue name is ABC 

the work flow is D-> E-> F

But in E state i have to use 3 different workflows .   

How to create multiple workflows in E?


Thomas Schlegel Community Leader Apr 19, 2017

You simply have to add more then one transition from E:

  • E -> F
  • E -> G
  • E -> H

Or did I understand your question wrong?


My present workflow is 

Craeted -> In progress - > Done

Now i want to change my work flow 

Created - > In progress -> Done

But here In progress step i  want to create 3 workflows .these 3 work flows run in parallel.

1st workflow is 

Created - > Implementation ->  Testing -> Done

2nd workflow is

Created - > In progress -> Done

3rd  workflow is 

Created - > In progress -> Done

These 3 subtasks are run parallel in In progress  step.

Is it possible ?

It is very well possible that Thomas' answer is what you need. However, it might be easier to assist if you could just specify exactly what you need, rather than using D / E / F to represent what you call 'the worklows'.

A workflow consists of statuses (created / in progress / done in your example) and transitions (the path from one status to another, represented by an arrow in the workflow diagram).

If F, G and H in the example from Thomas are statuses, than you should be fine by adding them to your workflow and - indeed - adding 3 transitions from status E.

You can use conditions and/or validators on the transitions to help decide under what circumstances they may be available.

This is basically the same question you asked yesterday, which has similar answers.


But i am not understanding how to  create work flow for subtask ? am new to JIRA . i am learning now . can you please explain clearly.  

and how to create subtask ?


Thank you
