Your Workflow with Recursive Global Transition
By using the previous Workflow Editor (Flex version) and some small edit in the XML descriptor, we are able to implement Recursive Global Transitions.
It was resolving many issue in our Workflow Design.
Workflow altered since Jira 6.x
Since Jira 6.x, Workflows were altered on publication.
Instead of 1 transition, you'll have x number of transitions to manage.
Direct copy of XML Descriptor between 2 Workflows
In order to keep your Workflows as you designed it (with Recursive Global Transitions), you can override a published Workflow with its copy before the Publish / Assign operation
This plugin provides a workaround related the issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-38337.
With Jira 6.x, as soon you publish a Workflow that contains some Recursive Global Transition, it is altered by splitting each of these transition into many Step Transition (1 per step).
It means than instead managing one Global Transition, you will have to manage n Step Transitions.
This plugin allow you to restore your initial Workflow after publication ...
Before publishing a new Workflow or assigning it into a Draft Workflow Scheme, keep a copy. This copy will stay as an inactive Workflow.
And after the publication, your Worklow is now altered by Jira.
You can recopy this inactive Workflow using the action "Copy to", directly by overriding its descriptor into the published Workflow.
