Jira 6.2.3 - Show Transition when viewing Workflow


it is possible that the transition is always displayed and not only when the mouse moves over the status?



Best regards

There is some misunderstanding here I think. What you've highlightted is the current issue status which sorrespod to a workflow step. A transition is a "path" between steps and there can be more than one transition available when an issues is in a certain status.

So what do you want displayed actually ? The workflow step name probably ?

Hello Boris,

thank you for explaining but i think you do not understand what i mean or my english is not so good.


Look here in jira 5 the transition between the status will always be show:

but in the new version of jira i have to mouse over a status to see the transition that are possible to execute.

Best regards


Sorry, I misunderstood you. You can't configure what you want. The only way is to modify the workflow plugin directly (CanvasModel.js) and upload a custom version which has the showTransitionLabels=true by default

Hello Boris,

thank you for reply. Where can i find the file?

Best regards
