Why can not I create a transition in one step?

I need to create a transition that will allow reopening an improperly closed bug, but the option to add transition is not displayed. How do I fix this?TransitionMensage.PNG

Hi Everton, I believe the information below will be useful:

Limitations when editing an active workflow

Please note that the following limitations apply when editing an active workflow (i.e. a draft workflow):

  • It is not possible to edit the workflow name (only the description) if a workflow is active.
  • Workflow statuses cannot be deleted.
  • If a status has no outgoing transitions (Global transitions are not considered), it cannot have any new outgoing transitions added, regular or global.
  • The step ID cannot be changed. See the following article for details on this: Cannot Add Transitions or Delete Steps in Draft Workflows.

You need to set the workflow as inactive (with no project related) so you can add the transition.

Agree with Rodrigo.

You need to do the following

  • make a copy of the current workflow
  • make changes to the copy
  • associate the copy to bug issue type
  • make changes in the workflow scheme to accept this new workflow for bugs
