I would like to see every workflow transition in a different tab

Hi Expert,

We are experiencing an issue where tickets at a certain point/status in their workflow then available workflow actions appear under default "Workflow" tab as drop down menu but I would like to see every available workflow actions/transition in a different tab
without drop down menu.

could you please tell how can I see every transition in a different tab?

Hey Mohin,

Please follow Matheus's answer here: How to change the workflow buttons on the issue screen? 


Tabs have nothing to do with it.  These are menu items, shown as buttons

The menu is controlled by a simple default setting, if you want to override it, look for the file "jira-config.properties" in the JIRA home directory.  If you can't find one, that's fine, just create a plain text file of that name.

In that file, edit or add

 ops.bar.group.size.opsbar-transitions = 9

(Or whatever number you want - the default is 2, so I suspect you want at least 7)

Then restart JIra
