Hi Marzii125,

The displayed characters are limited to 25 characters - see JRASERVER-26746. I think you can use the reorder of buttons - the first button in the order will display the longest text. Please see Advanced workflow configuration:

To change the order of transition buttons:

To change the order of transition buttons, including additional transitions in the Workflow menu, add the property key opsbar-sequence to each workflow transition that you wish to reorder. Each opsbar-sequence property key requires a property value that defines the order of the transition action on issue views.

  1. Go to the transition's properties, as described in Transition properties above.
  2. Type opsbar-sequence into the Property Key field, under 'Add New Property'.
  3. Type a value In the Property Value field, The value must be a positive integer (starting at '0'); it defines the order of the transition buttons on issue views.
  4. Consider using a sequence of opsbar-sequence property values like 10, 20, 30... to allow new transitions to be easily added later.
  5. Click Add.

Adding the opsbar-sequence property to a workflow transition does not change the order of these transitions in the workflow in Text edit mode. The addition of this property only affects the order of transitions on the View issue page.



Thanks @Pavel Junek 

My mean is not sorting transition button,
and  JRASERVER-26746 is for opsbar-transition-more-drop in issue, I want in view screen  any transition button display full name.

Hi @RainBow,

Ah, I see. It seems that it is unfortunately not possible to do it in the standard way - JRASERVER-39809 .
