How do I add/edit board columns in a business project ?

See attached screenshot. There is no visible link for board settings, only project settings.  Thank you.Screen Shot 2019-09-16 at 12.35.03 PM.png

The way tasks and processes are managed in Jira Core is through workflows. In order to add/edit the column, you may need to add/update the workflow of the project. You need to be a Jira administrator to create and edit workflows.


Thanks Nick, I have fixed the link :) 

Have this issue also, I've created a new project and I'm the company admin. Wasting time, looking how to add a column on the board, annoying

I am having this issue as well. It seems like some boards do not offer that functionality, unless I am missing it.

We have the same issue with a "business"-project-type.
The hint on this page with the Workflows helped to setup a new column and new transitions.

As answered in other threads, business boards simply follow the workflow.  So you need to add status and transitions to your workflow to get it to show a new column.

It should be visible at the top right hand corner of this screen

If you don't have configure in there, then you will need to talk to one of the board admins about getting yourself added to the board as an admin.

Visit Boards -> All Boards and check the table
