I want to create a new project based on an existing workflow

Ken Jacobs March 30, 2022

How do I do this? I have a special workflow and do not want to use one of the Jira templates. It's been awhile since I created a project. What changed?


I am using the free version. BTW.

HI @Ken Jacobs ,


When you create a project, you can choose to shared the same template workflows as another project. If you created this special workflow on the side and haven't tied it to any project...then you would create a project and then afterward associate the workflow scheme.

Keep in mind that a workflow must be place in a workflow scheme before it can be applied to a project. 

Here's the documentation:


This is cloud but the same principal applies to server as well.
