Global transition in workflow does not work

I have made a workflow with one global transition named close. This transition does work for all statuses except one.

From the status approved it is not possible to close the issue. The status has only the global transition as outgoing.

The transition is not shown on the issue screen. Why does this not work? All the permissions are OK.

When I add a normal outgoing transition close issue to the status approved (outgoing transion with the same name close is not possible), suddenly the global trasition *and* the new transition appear on the issue screen.

And they both work as designed.

How come? What is going wrong? What is the best way to solve this problem. Or is it a bug?

There is no need to add an other outgoing transition from status approved to any other status. Transition to close is sufficient.

Hi Marcel,

In this case, I believe it is better to raise an issue at and attach your backup or at least your workflow to the issue, as we will need to take a look at your data to understand exactly what is happening.
