How to make Jira workflows visible for all users?

Several people asked where they can find the workflows on Jira, I was surpised to discover that these are not visible in the project view page.

How can I make them visible to use users?

If I got you correct, you can make the workflow visible to the group/role on the View Issue Screen by granting the group/role permission - "View (Read-Only) Workflow".

You can find this permission under the Permission Scheme of your project under the Project Permission section. Just add the 'jira-users' group to this permissionand all users will be able to see the read-only form of the workflow.

Hope this is what you're looking for.

Altough this will alow people to see the workflow corresponding to the issuetype where he's at. Not all the workflows at once.


Once the above mentioned permission is enabled, Workflow diagram will be available on the View Issue Screen (Next to Status) & not on the Project View Page.
