Creating a project with custom workflow?

I've setup a custom workflow and would like to use it when I create a new project. However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to associate it with my workflow when it's created.

I get that I can create a project and then associate it with my workflow, but in doing that I have to first pick a workflow at random from the defaults (Simple Issue Tracking, Project Management, Agile Kanba, Software Development, Agile Scrum, or JIRA classic), then adminster the project and change all of the schemes to what I'd like and then go delete all the stuff that got created automatically (workflow and workflow scheme).

Am I really stuck having to manually configure the project every time and then go clean up all the stuff that automatically gets created?

Currently JIRA doesn't do it out of the box. There are a couple of add-ons on the marketplace (we have one of them - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.wittified.jira.project-creator) that will do what you want. You can also write your own JIRA blueprint but that might be too overkill for you.

With OnDemand, I'm afraid you are stuck - you can't install plugins, including ones that provide blueprints.
