How to change the Jira workflow button options in issue view

Hi there,

I have my Jira workflow set up so that every status has a global transition. While there is still a logical workflow that we follow, this just allows flexibility to move around the board without having to go through an official 'flow'. When I am in the issue view, the buttons for transitions statuses are fixed, even if the ticket is moved to that status:

Is there a way to manipulate what buttons are shown here while keeping each status as having global transitions?

 

Thanks

If you wished to change to change the order of the transition buttons, including additional transitions in the Workflow menu, add the property key opsbar-sequence to each workflow transition that you wish to reorder. Each opsbar-sequence property key requires a property value that defines the order of the transition action on issue views.

  1. Go to the transition's properties, as described in Transition properties above.
  2. Type opsbar-sequence into the Property Key field, under 'Add New Property'.
  3. Type a value In the Property Value field, The value must be a positive integer (starting at '0'); it defines the order of the transition buttons on issue views.
    Consider using a sequence of opsbar-sequence property values like 10, 20, 30... to allow new transitions to be easily added later.
  4. Click Add.

(info) Adding the opsbar-sequence property to a workflow transition does not change the order of these transitions in the workflow in Text edit mode. The addition of this property only affects the order of transitions on the View issue page.
