Hi Asaf,

Welcome, if you go to the workflow where the transition is  located, and you see it in text form, you will find the Transitions and their ID's:


Let us know how it goes.



In addition you can use the API REST as stated in other answer, here's an example:



{"expand":"transitions","transitions":[{"id":"11","name":"Backlog","to":{"self":"","description":"","iconUrl":"","name":"Backlog","id":"10120","statusCategory":{"self":"","id":2,"key":"new","colorName":"blue-gray","name":"To Do"}},"hasScreen":false,"isGlobal":true,"isInitial":false,"isAvailable":true,"isConditional":false,"isLooped":false},{"id":"21","name":"Selected for Development","to":{"self":"","description":"","iconUrl":"","name":"Selected for Development","id":"10121","statusCategory":{"self":"","id":2,"key":"new","colorName":"blue-gray","name":"To Do"}},"hasScreen":false,"isGlobal":true,"isInitial":false,"isAvailable":true,"isConditional":false,"isLooped":false},{"id":"31","name":"In Progress","to":{"self":"","description":"This issue is being actively worked on at the moment by the assignee.","iconUrl":"","name":"In Progress","id":"3","statusCategory":{"self":"","id":4,"key":"indeterminate","colorName":"yellow","name":"In Progress"}},"hasScreen":false,"isGlobal":true,"isInitial":false,"isAvailable":true,"isConditional":false,"isLooped":false},{"id":"41","name":"Done","to":{"self":"","description":"","iconUrl":"","name":"Done","id":"10001","statusCategory":{"self":"","id":3,"key":"done","colorName":"green","name":"Done"}},"hasScreen":false,"isGlobal":true,"isInitial":false,"isAvailable":true,"isConditional":false,"isLooped":false}]}

You can grab your answer and save it as a json or copy&paste it here

Hi @Asaf Djabar-Zade ,

Welcome to the community !!

To find a transition ID, you need to open the workflow from Admin settings --> Issues --> Workflow.

Click on Edit against the required workflow and open in text mode.
Now click on the transition and in the url you can find the ID.
   It will have like "workflowTransition=9252"


Thank you, i have made a scheme but i do not see the project i need in the project list when trying to associate it with my project

I only see company-managed projects in the list while the one im working on is team-managed

what do i do?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Look above the diagram, the tabs are Diagram / Text / Export.

You'll find each transition name has a number next to it in () 

am i missing something?


Ah, no, you're not missing anything.  Team-managed projects contain the workflow, and the editor for them doesn't have a text mode.  (Another reason I tell people not to use team-managed projects - they're not yet ready for any serious usage)

You'll need to use @Mohamed Benziane suggestion of grabbing them from the REST API.

i tried that, and i only get the ID's of like "to do", " in progress" and "done"

how can i find the id to transition the issue to my custom status like shown in the picture? for example "waiting for contract"?

That suggests you were looking at an issue type that is associated with a different workflow in the project.

i see, and i cannot associate it with the workflow i made because it only lists company-managed projects in the associate page...

welp, guess il have to remake the board as company managed :/


thank you!
