When a workflow validation fails, Jira displays a warning with text (It seems that you have tried to perform an illegal workflow operation. If you think this message is wrong, please contact your JIRA administrators)
Where can I change this text?
Thanks in advance.
If you are writing a custom validator - please refer to https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Validators
you can put your message to InvalidInputException (or attach it to custom / normal field using 2 arguments constructor)
If you use validator that require some action on a custom field - put that field on the transition screen so user can do the needed action within the transition.
If you are using some bad written validator and want to replace system message - it seems to be inside file \atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes\com\atlassian\jira\web\action\JiraWebActionSupport.properties under illegal.workflow.desc paraeter
