I understand what are Status and why we use transitions, I have setup the whole workflow which has 15 Status, I have 1 very simple question -
Currently when I click on Status drop down on backlog page, It shows me combination of both Transition + Status (ex. Start Analysis -> ANALYSIS), Here Start Analysis is transition and ANALYSIS is status.
I just want to show status in drop down without Transition as my team well understand transitions. I want to keep all my transitions in background, don't want to change all to "Allow all statuses to transition to this one" (As I know this is another tactic to show only Status in drop down).
Is that possible in Jira or not ?
Again to make it clear, I do not want to show in drop down -
"Start Analysis -> ANALYSIS
To Transition -> CANCELLED
Back -> IN PROGRESS"
Want to show it like -
I found similar question raised before but did not find any satisfactory answer.
Nic, Just one extended query, For any status with global transition (Can be accessed from any other status), In Drop down it shows "Transition to -> CANCELLED", Can we replace this standard transition name "Transition to" with our own choice.
It allows to edit on workflow page but in dropdown on Backlog Bug page, always shows "Transition to".
Actually I want to see in dropdown as "Cancel -> CANCELLED" in dropdown instead of "Transition to -> CANCELLED"
On workflow page it is defined as :
COMPLETED <- ALL
Sorry for the delay, I've been swamped.
I'm afraid it's the same answer, you'll need to code, which you can't do on Cloud.
However, I don't see these on the drop-downs in the Cloud systems I use, so I'm wondering if you are on server, or actually have the names embedded in the target status names?
