      Atlassian Update - 9 January 2017

      Hi everyone,

      We're pleased to announce that this suggestion was implemented in JIRA Server 7.3.

      We'll keep you informed, once we decide to release this improvement to JIRA Cloud.

      Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or feedback.

      If you create a workflow with a few steps, but don't add any transitions to them, no transitions can be added and the steps cannot be deleted once the workflow scheme is associated to a project, even if you make a draft workflow.

      As soon as you disassociate all projects from the workflow scheme, you can add transitions or delete the step.

      How to reproduce:

      1. Create a workflow.
      2. Create multiple steps in the workflow but add no transitions.
      3. Create a workflow scheme.
      4. Associate the workflow to an issue type in the workflow scheme.
      5. Associate the workflow scheme to a project.
      6. Create a draft of the workflow.
      7. Try to add a transition to any of the steps.
      8. Try to delete any of the steps.

      This is not a support request, as I have a workaround: make sure every step has at least one transition before associating them to a project.
