      Status Update

      We are in the process of rolling out an entirely new issue detail view for Jira Cloud, across all products. This new issue experience has been completely redesigned and includes a single status transition button with a drop-down, which will show all status's and/or all transitions --> status if you have multiple transitions to a single status within your workflow. The ordering is just alphabetical within each status category (to do, in progress, done).

      The new issue view is available to all Jira users. You can enable it by going to your personal settings, then scrolling down to find a Jira Labs section and enabling it.

      Workflow transitions and status are a key part of any Jira issue, so our aim was to make it much more prominent, easier to understand, and easier to update when you want to make a change. You can read more about all the new features here:

      If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I will be closing this issue as it should be addressed by the new issue view. Thanks!

      Per http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow#ConfiguringWorkflow-Changingthenumberoftransitionbuttons one has to edit the jira-application.properties file to modify the number of workflow transition that show on issue screens. This request is for the ability to modify this behavior in the admin UI.

      It would also be beneficial if customers could change the Ops Bar Action icons in addition to the workflow transition buttons. I.E. be able to view 'clone' or 'attach files' as a button instead of in the list of it's a heavily used function.



      1. Modifications in the  jira-config.properties file is not supported in Cloud.
