Workflow issues

When I make changes to a workflow, an error is given saying active workflows cannot be edit.  I publish the workflow and then try to edit and I get the same error message.  What is going on?

What are you trying to do on this workflow exactly ? Because there are actions that cannot be done on a draft workflow, and must be donne on an inactive workflow. (e.g. removing a status)

Hello Mukul,

You can't edit an active workflow (currently being used) , so try to copy the workflow and make your changes there, after that, just assign that new workflow copy you just created to your project again.

I believe the documentation below should helps to understand how editing a workflow works in JIRA.
