How are workflows different between classic and next-gen?

In classic projects, workflows are independent of request types. This means multiple request types can share the same workflow. Changing a workflow will impact every request type associated with it. Workflows have their own place in your project settings.

In next-gen projects, each request type has its own workflow. Changing a workflow only impacts that specific request type associated with it. Since workflows are attached to a request type, you edit a workflow by going to its associated request type. You can copy workflows across request types within the project, but they become independent after copying. Copied workflows aren’t updated simultaneously when a change is made to one of the request types.

You need be an administrator in your project to edit its workflows. Learn more about next-gen project roles.

To copy a workflow to other request types in a next-gen project:

  1. From your service project, go to Service project settings () > Request types.

  2. Select a request type from the sidebar.

  3. Select Edit workflow.

  4. Select > Copy to other request types.

  5. Choose request types to copy to.

  6. Select Copy.
