I have added a status of "In Progress" category. I have added one transition from To DO to deferred state but unable to add back a transition from deferred state to To Do.

error is displayed "You cannot perform this operation on a draft workflow. Please help.

Hi Aamar, 

Is the workflow associated with a project already?

You will need to copy the workflow, make your changes, then associate this new workflow with the workflow scheme.

@Nic Brough It would be kind of you if you could look into the query.

You can't do some things with draft workflows. Louise has already answered this question

Editing an active workflow

An active workflow is a workflow that is currently being used by one or more projects.

When you edit an active workflow, JIRA first creates a 'draft' of it.

  • The 'draft' of your active workflow allows you to make modifications to the workflow with the benefit of real-time validations.
  • Once you have finished modifying your draft workflow, you can publish your draft, during which you have the option of saving your original workflow as an inactive backup.
