Can I "hide" a transition?

I have a workflow transition that is used rarely and is only available to system administrators.

Is there a way to hide this transition on the Workflow diagram?

(Previous edit said "step" when I meant "Transition")

To my knowledge, even inactive steps will be displayed in the workflow diagram.

I believe this cannot be achieved with current releases of JIRA.

I can confirm that - the viewer will show all of the workflow, irrespective of conditions.

You can hide 'Transition' either :(

You can't hide 'Transition' either :(

You can try to remove all incoming and outgoing transitions from that step and that way it will be hidden. Also make sure that there are no issues in that status before you remove the outgoing transitions.

In any case, you will not be allowed to edit an active workflow, so you will have to copy it, edit it and migrate your existing project to this new workflow.


But, this will remove the step completly from workflow.
