Depends on what you mean by "integrate".

An issue type in a project can only have one workflow. So, if by "integrate" you mean you want to use two different workflows, you can't - you need to have two different issue types. If you mean you want to merge them though, then you need to come up with a new workflow that implements all the routes you might take through the process and consider blocking/allowing transitiosn with conditions.

Hi Nic,

Actually I am having Test as a single project now i want to invoke 2 different workflows for the issue type bug and story in a "Test Project".

Is it Possible to invoke,if possible means kindly give a steps to invoke

Thanks

Oh, I see, standard usage.

Assuming you've got "bug workflow" and "story workflow" already set up, then create a "workflow scheme", and set it up to say "for bugs use bug-workflow" and "for stories use story-workflow". Then associate it with the project.

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflowand look at the pages under it as well.

I tried Nic it was saying, There are 420 sub-tasks that will be affected by this change. You must have at least one valid sub-task issue type.

That's not a workflow change.

This error is you trying to change the issue type scheme. It means what it says - you're trying to change from a scheme that has sub-tasks to one that does not. You can't do that unless you convert all the sub-tasks to top level issues. Either do that, or add at least one sub-task type into the new scheme.
