How can I add different workflows per issue-type in Jira?

Hi guys,

My project uses one workflow. I've copied it and re-named.

Dunno how can I set that all types of issues will be using one workflow, while e.g. stories will use the other for the same project?

Help is needed and will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Aquarius.

Look for "workflow schemes"

A workflow-scheme says "for issue type 1, use workflow X, for issue type 8, use workflow Y and by default, for all other issue types, use Z".

The default workflow scheme says "use workflow X by default"

How do you do this in 2021?

Same as you did in 2013 - workflow schemes are still the way Jira associates workflows with projects (on Server, DC and for Cloud company-managed projects.  Cloud team-managed projects don't have workflows)

You will first need to create a new workflow for the required issue type

Then from your workflow scheme associate a workflow to the issuetype .

Just to be clear...

Workflow is usually Create open resolve close sequence. Where is edit there or where in the workflow I should specify/restrict that editing is NOT possible?

Thanks,

Aquarius.

Yes, workflow moves between status.

I think you're asking how to prevent people editing an issue when it is in certain status? The default workflow does that on "closed" - you'll notice that although you can "reopen", you can't "edit" closed issues.

The way to do that is with a property on the closed step. I can't remember off the top of my head (have a look at the closed step in the default workflow), but you set a property like "jira.editable = false"
