I have come across this issue for the first time where few issues in one project are missing the Workflow button and I cant even drag them from one staus to another. we are in 6.4.12 version.
I tried to change the issue type and bring it back to original issue type. That didnt help and after researching I found that republishing of workflow helps. but havent tried that. and someone could let me know how I can do that without interuppiting other projects that share the same workflow will be a great help.
most of the time, the reason why a workflow transition is not available (and therefore the button not visible) lies in the workflow itself.
If you encounter this the next time, please check the conditions of the workflow transition:
Is there a condition that hides it from the user? Might be that there are open subtasks or that the user is not allowed to trigger that transition.
As Thomas said, the most common reason is a validation in the workflow.
If you have another issue with equal values in the fields and same status and you can do the transition, maybe you can run the integrity checker to find and solve problems in that particular issue.
Thank you for the prompt reply Thomas and Gaston. However I did check the workflow and in the condition for the transition from open to another status it says user with edit permission can move the issue however another user who is the project lead also couldn't drag the issue and me being system admin in Jira also couldn't do it. And they just raised one more issue having the same problem that workflow button being missing.
I am going to re index this weekend will check if that fixes the issue.
Thank you for your help in this matter. I really appreaciate it.
Please find the screen shots attached of the permission scheme and workflow and their conditions and post function.
We have the same condition amd post function for all the transitions in this workflow.
