How can I know if a workflow is using a workflow-plugin?

Hi

I have a custom made workflow in JIRA (v6.2). I would like to know by viewing/editing the workflow if the workflow is using any conditions, validators or post functinons provided by an specific wf-plugin (in this case the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions). Without finding out the hard way, uninstall the plugin and see if the workflow breaks. Any suggestions?

You can export the workflow in XML, and then look inside the XML for "com.innovalog.jmwe".

Thanks for the tip, David :-)

I have a follow-up quetion, actually a new question. When I export the workflow as workflow (not xml) these messages are displayed:

The items from the following plugins were removed from the workflow:

- JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions

Transition: Reopen Issue

System post functions removed from this transition:

- Update Issue Field

Transition: Start Progress

System post functions removed from this transition:

- Update Issue Field

Transition: Stop Progress

System post functions removed from this transition:

- Update Issue Field

Transition: Approved by customer

System conditions removed from this transition:

- User Is In Project Role

Transition: Reopen Issue

System post functions removed from this transition:

- Update Issue Field

Transition: Request information

Plugin validators removed from this transition:

- Comment Required Validator (JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions)

What does this messages mean? Seams to me there is something wrong with the workflow and I can't export the workflow as it is? Any ideas?

Can the issues be related to JIRA Misc WF ext invalid/missing product/license for the plugin?

I am not sure, but I believe JIRA removes any reference to third-party plugins when exporting workflows, so that they can be shared on the MarketPlace (which is the primary goal of this export feature). David

Thanks for your answers :-)
