How to rename a workflow in Jira 5.2.4

Tried to find an option to rename inactive/draft workflow in Jira 5.2.4. Is there a way to rename ?

Yes, click the edit button next to it. When the next screen comes, use the pencil icon next to the name and edit it.

Seems this only works for inactive, not draft workflows. With drafts you can only change the description. This is annoying because there appears to be a bug in the viewworkflows project admin page, where the diagram fails (broken image) if the workflow has leading or trailing spaces.

Have a look at this link. It is quite exhaustive.


Hi, Is there any way to edit the status name of an active workflow in jira? Thanks and Regards Neena
