Hello Daniel,

Please take a look to workflows in the entities.XML. I am suspecting that it might be the draft workflows. You need to delete those from the database using the queries stated in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Duplicate+Draft+Workflows+Render+'Workflows'+Administration+Unusable.

Hope it helps.

Regards,

Monique
