Editing Workflow Always shows as a draft that can't be edited

I'm trying to edit a workflow to add a post function that assigns the reporter as the assignee after the issue is created.

I click edit on the workflow, and it AUTOMATICALLY says i'm editing a draft, which needs to be published. Then I click Add Transition, or Add Status, and it tells me I can't do anything, because it's a draft. I publish the draft, same thing. I discard the draft, same thing. Always goes immediately back to an ineditable draft status.

If someone could tell me how to fix this, WITHOUT creating a copy and replacing all my workflows again, that'd be great.

Also, where is the documentation for creating a post function?

Hi Kayla,

did you try to discard the unpublished draft first?

Hello Kayla,

just to be sure, you can't edit the default workflow. Btw this is the official JIRA on-Demand documentation https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Configuring+Workflow

Hope this helps,

Fabio

Kayla, did you solved that. I´m facing the same problem. Discarded the unpublished draft several times, but i just can´t create other status or transitions sad. If you solved let me know how.

Hi Kayla,

Had the same problem. Only worked iut when I set the workflow to inactive.

Then assigned it to a Project again.

Let me know if this worked! (Yes, I know it's almost a year old wink)
