During the workflow of an issue, we may need to freeze the workflow temporarily (for instance because the issue can be cancelled but we are not sure yet).
A big displayed warning which warn the user not to process the issue or related sub-tasks would be perfect but I don't think that is possible ?
I have currently not found any other solution than creating an additional status/step "Frozen" which can be reached from any status/steps and which can go back to any status/steps: very complicated.
Does anyone have a more elegant solution ?
Thanks very much in advance,
Workflow is indeed the best solution. See if you can use common or global transitions for lesser complexity.
Oh I found that this is in fact possible. You can create transition with a condition on the previous immediate status.
So the solution is to create a global transition to a "Frozen" status and to manually create transitions from this status to every other status (with each one of the transitions having a condition on the previous status).
Not anymore. We'll release a plugin soon which helps you eliminating (in certain conditions) the need for transitions.

Radu, can you please update the answer, the URL is broken and even by browing your website I wasn't able to find as solution for this problem: Freeze / Unfreeze. I need a solution that would not mess all my workflows.While Freeze is easy to implement as an Global transition (or common if you want it to make if available for Close state or others), I need a defroze solution :D
