Modifying dozens of status and transitions and hundreds of attributes/conditions/post functions, etc. gets really tedious through the UI.
Unfortunately, OnDemand doesn't let me import a workflow from XML.
It seems that it makes you upload the XML workflow (with metadata) to marketplace, and then import it from marketplace.
Are there restrictions on this process? Can I expect this to work?
Hi Paul -
Yeh - I guess you have hit a "cloud" restriction and can't upload from a local XML file which would make your life easier. Here's the only work around that I can think of:
Of course need to set up off-hours to do all this maintenance and this will be ongoing (down the line) if you keep having this need.
Maybe you want to consider "managed hosted" JIRA server, instead? Will also provide you with other flexibility.. If need any help - also with managed hosting options, happy to .. email@example.com
btw - the reason for that workflow templating is logical on Atlassian's behalf. They are trying to simplify workflow creation dramatically, which in the earlier days of JIRA was one of the most challenging areas for new system users. This "Import from Marketplace" feature does achieve this - but also does not allow you to import your own local XML file as an additional option.. Not sure why but SaaS offerings are about "keeping you in the box" more, for logical guiding you reasons.
