How can I change default workflow?


I have a custom workflow that I have created few days ago... Now I'm creating new project, and I realized that I have to use always the same Workflow...

So, what can I do to set my custom workflow like the default workflow, for stopping to have to change it every time that I made a new project?

This seems to be a feature request that has yet to be implemented :

Thank you very much Daniel... I know about this feature has yet to be implemented, and I'm asking, if someone have tha same problem, how have resolve it in a different way...

For example... if I remove the default "jira", not from the application JIRA, but modify the xml?

Or better, start to tweet links to tickets like this, Atlassian is more careful about tweeted ones! ;)

If you change the default workflow scheme to assign all unassigned issue types (or the ones you need) to the new workflow you should be ok.


Unfortunately, I think this just creates a new workflow for the project you happen to be working on. There is no easy way to edit the default workflow scheme.

Oh, yes you're right. I'm so used to use our "Default" Scheme that I forgot that's no the system default workflow scheme. :-) Ok, than I think there is currently no way without changing to the default workflow scheme after creating a project.

Same issue also I'm facing. Always I have to change our custom workflow as well as Issue Type. Please guide us to make it permanently so that we don't need to change the workflow always.

I am not a very advanced Jira user so I am not sure if this meets your requirement but...

How about this suggestion:

  • Create a project with all the settings you want to use as a default
    • Workflow Scheme
    • Permission Scheme
    • Notification Scheme
    • ...
  • Name the project "Default standard project"
  • Create new project
  • Select the option "Create with shared settings from existing project"
  • Select your "Default standard project"

It does the trick for me. How about you @MarcoC1?

Ah just noticed that Mihamina suggested the same thing :-)

This is a good option @Arian Hintringer
