Hi Sindhu,

JIRA workflows are set up as a directed graph, which means they will only follow the way that the arrow is pointing if you look at the workflow in the "Diagram" mode. If you want to be able to go back from "In Progress" to "Open", you'll need to add a new transition from "In Progress" back to "Open". 

Alternatively, if you want any status to be able to transition back to "Open", just add a new transition and choose "any status" from the "from status" dropdown.

Thanks for your information .

Let me explain my requirement properly

Open -> Inprogress

Backlog->Inprogress

Analysis->Inprogress

--

---- 

--- > Inprogress

 

Now from "Inprogess" to back to previous status.

how can we know it comes from which status to -> Inprogress

ex: if the status "Backlog" to "Inprogress"  and back to "backlog"

and Analysis->Inprogress and back to "Analysis"

Please kindly let us know is there any way to achieve it.
