    It would be very helpful to have actual examples that flow through the documentation.  I can certainly read what the actions do; but, it's difficult to discern how they fit into the big picture.  Jira is highly flexible, but that trait also makes it a bit complex to tie everything together.  For example, it would be very helpful to see custom screens and workflows then show how they were created – so, you start with the end result and then drill into how it is done. 

    I've been working as an administrator with the product for over 4 years and every time I go in to set up entirely new workflows and screens, it takes me awhile to step back and see how it all flows together and how to set it up.

  2. these articles assume you already have JIRA installed. nothing on the Structure and hardware.

  3. How do you delete a workflow? I'd like to remove the test one I created and don't see how to do that.
