Can I transit from one status to any other?

So the thing is I would like to have "Blocked" status which is global one, and at the same time I would like to users be able move from it to any other status in workflow.

Is there a neat way to do it without making separate transition for each status?

Thanks in advance!

Sebastian,

You can create a Global Transition for that. Just take a look at the step-by-step details in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+workflow+configuration#Advancedworkflowconfiguration-common_transitions wink

Thanks! Sorry for not being very clear, but I want to have something opposite not All -> Status but Status -> All. Is this even possible?

Hey Sebastian, Personally I have not been able to find any way to to this neatly, meaning without having to go through each transition. If there is such a feature, they must've hidden it very well :] I'm not an expert, but as far as I know you would indeed need to create these transitions for each status :(

This is not possible. You'd have to create multiple transition to achieve what you want to accomplish
