I have somehow found a way (by accident) to edit the default workflow status "To Do" it is now transformed into "Preparation" see attachment. Now the "To Do" status within all other workflows has changed into "Preparation", How can I change it back to "To Do"? I can't find the way, as the default workflow can not be edited.
Think of the status as a list of id-numbers with a labels. When you create a workflow, you create steps in the workflow, and for each step, you select a status by it's id-number. Your new workflow, and the default one all say things like "on step 1, use status with id 1, on step 4, use status id 64" and so-on.
What you've managed to do is change the labels. So, status (id=1, label = open) is now status (id= 1, label = preparation).
To fix it, just put the labels back. Go to Admin -> Issues -> Status and you'll see the list of status. Edit "in preparation" to "Open" and you'll find it all flips back to "Open" in the workflows and so-on
A workflow always has to have a "create" transition. When you belt "new workflow", Jira starts from scratch, but it will always give you the default "open" step, with the "create" going into it.
All you need to do is edit the "create" transition. You'll find you can change it's landing point to any other step. If you do that, you'll also be able to delete the "open" step
Actully what I want to do is to change the status that is linked to "open", right now is "Preparation" and it should be "To Do".
Yesterday as I created a new wf. This I changed the "To Do " status for the "Preparation" I do not know what I did, but all the wf in our instance now have "Preparation" instead of to do.
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
