How to copy a workflow?

Copying workflow is very important in Jira as Jira active workflow does not allow some modification which is needed after the workflow design.

In this case, we can copy the existing workflow and then associate it with the required project or issue type as per the business need.

Please follow the below steps:

  • Go to Setting (Jira Admin option) and click on it.
  • Select Issues as shown below screenshot:

  • Once you clicked on “Issues” below screen will be open and then you need to select workflow

  • Now we are able to see 3 options below “Action”.
  • Those options are “View”, “Edit” and “Copy” as shown below screen.

  • If we want to view it then we can just click on view and workflow will be open in view mode.
  • IF we want to edit it then just click on edit and workflow will be open in edit mode.
  • Since here we are seeing copying steps so we are going to click on “Copy”
  • Once we will click on a copy it will ask to provide a name.
  • We just need to provide the new name as we are copying so we cannot use the same name as shown on the below screen

  • Once workflow will be copied by default it will be inactive and now we can perform the changes in workflow as shown in below screen:

  • Now we can add the status and Transitions as per our business need.
  • Once you done with changes just associate with the required issue type.
  • Once you will associate it will become active.

Now we have successfully copied workflow.
