JIRA default system workflow seems to have some changes in the status, even though this workflow should not be editable. There is even a information box to indicate this.



  • Disable all plugin and the default system JIRA workflow still showing changes in the status.


This is caused by changing the original status of JIRA at JIRA Administration > Issues > Status

JIRA comes with these 5 default statuses and modifying these statuses will reflect in the JIRA default workflow:

  • Open
  • In Progress
  • Resolved
  • Closed
  • Reopened

From the example screenshot above, the Open status has been changed to 'Modified status' with 'In Progress' category at JIRA Administration > Issues > Status.


Change back the status to above standard status, and the default workflow will display the correct statuses. When configuring statuses, try to avoid changing the default statuses and create a new status instead.
