What is a temporary workflow?

To prevent problems, we turn off editing on workflows while we’re making updates to them. If the update takes a while, you may see a workflow with a name like Temporary workflow for 3 issue types 02:32 p.m.

We make this temporary workflow out of statuses from the issue type’s old workflow and the workflow it’s updating to. During a workflow update, we may move issues from one status to another, and we use this temporary workflow to ensure issues don’t get stuck in statuses that don’t exist.

If moving issues complete without problems, we delete the temporary workflow and successfully update your workflow. Otherwise, you may have to try making the workflow update again to make sure your issues have moved to the right statuses.
