Can I rename a JIRA workflow (and a JIRA workflow scheme)?

When in edit mode for a workflow I don't seem to be allowed to edit its name. Same applies to workflow schemes names.

Am I missing something?

You cannot edit the name of the workflow or its scheme. If you want to rename it, you need to make a copy of it and rename it and apply that workflow to the right workflow scheme.

If you want to rename a workflow scheme, its the same procedure, just make a copy of it and rename it. But here, you need to manually go to each project and change its workflow scheme.

Thanks, Rahul.

Just as I thought

Best regards. Karl.

Now (I guess since JIRA 7.0.0) it's possible to rename the Workflow Scheme. On the edit scree:

For Workflows you can edit only descriptions and Copy procedure is still needed to change the name.

When I copy Workflow Scheme (Jira 7.3.0) I don't get a pop-up window (like when copying Workflow) to give it a new name. The new scheme just gets created under the name "Copy of ..." and no chance of giving it a different name

You can edit name for Workflow Schemes although it's not very intuitive.

Click edit, then click the name and it goes to edit mode.

Thanks, works for me :-). Perhaps this is shown in the .png file in your reply 01.18.17 which appears to me as text, not link.

YAW. The image was not migrated from the old answers portal :).

Please guys, make it easer to just rename an existing workflow...

It's just about a name, so I don't understand the current method for changing the name of an existing workflow.

+1 for the suggestion of Franky Deleu

I agree - please give access to rename, super simple (you would think).
