jira.i18n.submit doesn't work

Hi all,

I am using jira 4.4.3.

I would like to change the submit button name in transition screens.

I do these steps:

1. Change the language jar file into zip file (my Jira server Regional and Language is UK)

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\lib\jira-lang-en_UK-4.4.3.jar

2. Extract the zip file

3. Modify the language properties file by adding "my.submit.button = Save" to the end of file

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\lib\jira-lang-en_UK-4.4.3\com\atlassian\jira\web\action\JiraWebActionSupport_en_UK.properties

4. Zip the folder and change back to jar replace the exiting language jar file.

5. Delete the Work > Catalina folder and start Jira service

6. Open Workflow, edit a transition properties

7. Add Properties Key as jira.i18n.submit, with Properties Value as my.submit.button

8. Publish the workflow

But when I navigate an issue through the specific transition, the submit button still have the same text as transition name. (I expect it to be "Save")

Did I miss something, please?

This widget could not be displayed.

Hi Tuan,
this works if your transition has both properties, e.g.

Property KeyProperty Value

Its work?

Hi Alex,

I tried above, but did not work.

Can you provide more description?
