In all 3 cases you have to:

  1. get the configuration entity you want (using the appropriate Manager)
  2. edit its name (again, using the right Manager)

For workflows, use WorkflowManager and its methods getWorkflowClone(name) and updateWorkflowNameAndDescription(username, workflow, newName, newDescription).

For Field Configurations it's a bit confusing, because internally they are called "FieldLayout" (take a look at the URL when manually editing a Field Configuration :D). Use FieldLayoutManager#getEditableFieldLayout(id) to get the FieldLayout, then FieldLayout#setName(newName), then FieldLayoutManager#storeEditableFieldLayout(myFieldLayout).

For Screen Schemes, use FieldScreenSchemeManager#getFieldScreenScheme(id), then FieldScreenScheme#setName(newName), then

Use com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor to get the Managers, as I showed in your previous question.

Thanks I hope this will wok out for me, I will accept the answer once it is tested out and share the complete scripts.



The title is ambiguous.
Do you want to rename Workflows, Field Configurations and (Field) Screen Schemes?
Or Workflow Schemes, Field Configuration Schemes and (Field) Screen Schemes?

There will be 3 different scripts .. each for

Renaming Workflow

Renaming Field Congurations

Renaming Screen Schemes

Also, please let me know if there are another ways available.
