Showing blue info square "Closing an issue..."

In my workflow I have several transitions leading to status Closed (steps called rejected). They need to be different since they have different conditions.

For one of them the blue square (see screenshot) is shown, but not for the others. As far as I can see they are the same.

I would be very thankful for input regarding how I can make this information square show up on all transitions I want.

I found this question where you can set the text but not how to make it show or not.

First check any description written by editing that particular transition in your workflow.

Later check for i18n description of workflow actions. Go to your workflow and download it in XML. See if there are any descriptions found there related to particular Close transition.

Thanks, I will check the XML!

I found this for the transitions where it worked:

<action id="1001" name="Reject" view="fieldscreen">

<meta name="opsbar-sequence">60</meta>

<meta name="jira.i18n.description">closeissue.desc</meta>

<meta name="jira.description"></meta>

<meta name="jira.fieldscreen.id">10100</meta>

So I updated the xml and imported it and then used the new workflow instead, and it worked. Thanks!!
