I want created issues to arrive at a status other than "open". "Edit transition" is greyed out on the cog of the create issue transition (as is "delete transistion" and "view conditions"). And if I try to add another transition from create issue, I get " You cannot add a transition to or from the initial action [Create] of a workflow." Do I need a special plug in to do this or maybe my version is too old. I'm on 5.0.2
There is no way to add a second transition from "create" - there's nothing there to hang it on.
You've got the right idea first time - you simply need to edit the actual create transition - you will be able to change it to any step you want in the rest of the workflow.
However, as that's greyed out, I suspect that you've hit one of two things - either you're trying to edit the default workflow (you can't) or you're trying to edit a workflow that is actively used by a project (which you can't in some cases). In both of these cases, make a copy of the workflow and try that - you should find edit transition then works.
>> Do I need a special plug in to do this or maybe my version is too old. I'm on 5.0.2
I think this is a bug. It is resolved in version 5.03.
