Hi! I've a problem with changejira project's workflow via REST API.
I have a jira version 6.3.8
I tried to use this manual - https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/6.3.8/
Maybe there is some hidden not documented API?
How can i do this?
Changing a workflow requires JIRA to do a whole swathe of integrity checks that can often lead to a load of questions needing to go back to the user.
A REST interface for that would be hideously complex and barely ever used, so Atlassian have not written one.
The answer for your usage really is what Thomas said - use a shared configuration.
On this topic, I have no idea how to use the REST API to actually copy the settings from another project to a new project. How do you do that? I can find no documentation on how to accomplish this. Sure, it mentions the `projectTemplateKey`, but I couldn't get it to work with that and it looks like it's more specifically an internal, non-changeable project template key.
If you please, could you give an example of how to do this via the API?
Using REST APIs the best you can do it to change the status of an issue i.e. do a workflow transition for a issue, but you can't change jira project's workflow to another workflow this isn't possible using REST API.
Programmatically this can be done - https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Answers-Developer-Questions/how-to-programatically-change-a-project-s-workflow-in-Jira/qaq-p/474694
To look a little closer at that question/searching around, this looks like it is an answer for if you have access to the Java API. In my case, this will not work because I don't. I'll need to do something if possible via the REST API.
I guess I could try to make a plugin that can do that, but I'm hoping to not have to go that deep just for this situation.
