Number of visible workflow buttons in Service Desk?

I wanted to increase the default number of visible transition buttons from 2 to 4 for a Service Desk project so I followed the instructions on this JIRA Server page (subsection: "To change the number of transition buttons from the default of two"). However, I see no difference. Should this be expected to work for Service Desk or is the property only observed by JIRA Core and Software projects?

It should work for all project types, but only in the plain Core issue view (i.e. looking at https://yourjira/browse/SD-42 for example)

Thanks for the reply, but on my installation that view behaves the same in terms of the buttons. I only see 2 buttons and then the menu. Any other ideas?


No, that's the way to change the number.  It's working fine on the installations I've done it to - are you sure have the right file, spelling of the property key and restarted your install?  (I usually managed to mis-spell properties when I'm trying to change them)
