Button for workflow transition in view issue


This is not a technical problem but for me and my company yes. I see that when I design a workflow where in one step have more of 2 transition, in view issue screen I have one button called 'Workflow' that contain the rest of transition that not display in screen.

I want to ask: It is possible in Jira to show all button transition in view issue and don't have the 'container' button of 'Workflow'? For my client is not funtional...

Thanks in advance,

You can raise the number of workflow buttons which are displayed on the view issue screen through changing the ops.bar.group.size.opsbar-transitions setting in the jira-config.properties file in your jirahome directory and restarting JIRA.

If all buttons are displayed the Workflow button won't disappear. I think for this you have to do some javascripting.


Works for me:

ops.bar.group.size.opsbar-transitions = 4

Thanks Mick and Henning! :)

Hi Daniel,

It is possible to customize these buttons and the order of them, information on this can be found here

i cannot find this file in my server

It's normal. I also don't have file because it's new installation (standalone). You have to create this file and put in Jira Home.
