Within one JIRA project can I use multiple workflows based on issue type?

I created a new Issue type called Build. I copied the project's existing issue type scheme, added "Build" to it, then associated the project with the new scheme.

I want issues of type "Build" to use a different workflow than other issue types in the same project.

I thought I could do this, but now that I am attempting to implement it, I can't figure out the right sequence of events. Maybe this isn't possible?

Thanks for your help.

Yes you can do this. Please find the link below for details https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+workflow+schemes

The key is create a separate workflow scheme and associated with the issue type.

Cool. I had the new workflow created. I couldn't figure out where to do the link. All working now. Thanks!
