Can anyone tell me how to attach a transition to make a change to a workflow once it is ‘active,’ I created a draft of the workflow (the graphical designer does this automatically), then edit the draft, and finally publish the draft?  However, some changes to a workflow can’t be done creating a draft, for example, if we want to remove a status or change the name of a step used for a status.  When I attach a transition from one particular status, the receiving status appears with a dashed red border and indicates no incoming transitions to that status.  As an experiment, I removed all the statuses and deleted all the transitions, but the situation still remained.  We’re using JIRA 6.4 SAAS.

Hi Liz

you cannot perform certain edit actions to a workflow if it is in use. Make a copy of the workflow first. Then make all your changes. After that edit the workflow scheme of the project that uses the old and replace the old with the new in there.
