How can I rename a Jira Workflow?

Hi,

I have created a JIRA workflow. In my haste I spelled one of the words incorrectly.

How can I rename the workflow?

It will not allow you to rename when its active (attached to workflow scheme)

Take a copy of the workflow, rename it, attach to the workflow scheme and remove old workflow from the scheme!

Thanks Jijo. Your instructions were spot on.

Yes thanks. Kind of a silly mechanic the system enforces (renaming should be easy always) but this worked.

You can't. Just copy it with the desired name and associate it with the scheme you want.

What's the purpose of that restriction (to simply rename the workflow)?
