Is there a way to rearrange the Transition id's in the workflow

Hi All,

I would like to know whether transition id can be moved up or down during the workflow. For example, In my workflow i have transitions in the following order,

Analysis in progress --> Code change needed 

Analysis in progress --> Cancel

Analysis in progress --> Hold

Analysis in progress --> Doc change needed 

Analysis in progress --> Invalid


I would like to rearrange the above order. I want to move 'Doc change needed' may be after 'code change needed'.The reason being, buttons on the workflow transition are displayed based on the 'transition id' order. I want my 'Doc change needed' and 'code change needed' to be available as top options for the workflow.

Is there a way to achieve this ? please let me know.

Yes, you can set an opsbar.sequence property on each transition and JIRA will put them on your menu in low-to-high order (I think it's low-high, from memory) - most of us set values like 10, 20, 30 rather than 1,2,3 so it's easier to re-arrange them later.


Hi Nic,

Thanks for your response. I was able to implement the reordering of the transitions. I had to apply for all the transitions in the workflow to make it work.
