Hi @Chi Nguyen
  • Create a Workflow Scheme.
  • Assign Workflows with respective Issue Types which uses that Workflow under Workflow Scheme.
  • Select the Project you want to tie this Workflow Scheme.
  • Go to Project Administration Screen of the Project Selected, Click on Workflow Tab, Switch Scheme to select the desired workflow scheme, associate it and that fixes it.

Yes, I did it ok now. Thanks @Chander Inguva


don't get me wrong but have you ever had a look a the documentation?

This will get you started creating a workflow:

Then you create a workflow scheme and associate workflows (activate them) with that scheme:

Here you'll find more info on schemes:

Hope that help,



yes, I did it ok yesterday as many time to find out on document but it works ok now. Thanks for you help. Do you have Skype too? Regards, Chi

The documentation is scattered everywhere and usually not helpful. Something as simple as changing a Workflow, Screen or Permission Scheme can be quite challenging.

Don't get me wrong, Jira is a great product once configured, but the documentation and support are pitiful at best!

This page is fundamentally misleading and out of date although I eventually found the answer in Settings -> Workflows -> Switch Scheme:


It is this section:


To finish activating your workflow, associate the workflow scheme it's in with a project (if an issue type is not defined in the project's issue type scheme, that specific workflow is not used):

  1. In the sidebar, click Issue type schemes. You'll see which workflow scheme the project currently uses.

  2. Click Associate to begin the migration process. Each issue needs to have a valid status, so you may need to assign statuses to a select number of issues after you switch workflow schemes.
