Workflow XML export in JIRA

Hi All,

we just tried the workflow xml export in Jira. We saw that the imported workflow looks correct but we just saw that the new statuses configured to the imported workflow does not exist. Did you know that?

is there anything anything else which the workflow import doesn't create???

The workflow XML import only creates the workflow, nothing else. If you refer to

  • plugins (conditions, validators, postfunctions)
  • custom fields
  • statuses
  • configurations (like priorities)

which doesn't exists it is not automatically created. You can use the workflow sharing to export and import workflows including dependencies if you use JIRA 6.
