Needs some opsbar-sequence property key examples

I've read all the docs I can find about setting the order of the available workflow options and I understand everything up to the point of actually setting the valueds for the opsbar-sequence property key. I have 4 available transitions from a workflow step and I want to put them in a specific order. How do I figure out the values to use to get them that way?

I'm not sure there is an example here. You set the properties. Jira reads the numbers and shows the transitions in the order low to high.

I usually use them in 10s, so there's space for inserts later, and I usually consider the workflow as a whole, so transitions later in the flow, like "close" will end up with higher numbers.

e.g. Open -> in progress 20, in-progress -> on-hold 30, Resolve 40, close 60

that's how we set it up too. works as expected

oh! lightbulb moment! I'm setting the opsbar-sequence property on the individual transitions. I thought I was setting it on the whole step. Thanks for clarifying that.

We had done it by editing the workflow xml.


Each transition will start with <action id="xx" name = "yyyy"> & end with </action>, so we took each block & ordered in the way as required. Once done import the Worklow by XML.

Ooh, no, that's painful to do and won't work if you've got shared transtions. It is the only method that works on older Jira versions though
