Issue with workflow scheme in Jira 6.0

I have a workflow scheme and I need to remove a workflow from it.

In Jira 5.X I needed to disassociate this scheme from every project before actually removing a workflow, but in Jira 6.0 it looks I can do it directly. However if I click remove next to the workflow, I get a prompt (There are unpublished changes. Do you want to publish this draft now?). Here I start getting server errors if I click on the publish button.

Is this a bug?

Hi Adolfo,

Please make sure if the workflow you are trying to remove from the workflow scheme doesn't have any drafts (there will be a exclamation mark next to the workflow name if there are any drafts). If there is a draft, please remove the draft and give it another try.

but if it doesn't help, please raise an issue in our support system: and attach your latest logs. We will need to take a closer look at the case.

Thank you!


Tried that, same issue. I raised a support.

Hi Adolfo,

Could you perhaps include some of the error messages here? I tried reproducing this in my local instance, but no dice so far

When I click Publish I get a browser dialog: An operation is in progress. If you navigate away from this page your changes may be lost.

Then a Jira dialog: The Jira server was contacted but returned an error response. e are unsure of the result of this operation.
