Workflow is the movement (or transition) of an issue through various Statuses during its lifecycle.

The following diagram shows JIRA's default workflow, where:

  • each status is represented by a blue box
  • each transition is indicated by an arrow.

JIRA's workflow can also be customised by your JIRA administrator.
