Project Administror to a scrum board. I can add a column but not a status

On my project board, I am able to add a new colum with the heading  Test, but when I do this, the following comes up


This column will not show on board without Status


I do not have any option to add status and therefore the Test Column is not being added

Can you please assist

Hello Shirley,

This most likely means you have a shared workflow with other projects therefore your Jira admin will have to make the change and the status. 

So when you say Jira Administrator, how would I find out who that is

Good question! I dont know that there is a place in Jira where it says this. Its usually whoever makes the global changes to your Jira instance. Someone with higher access than you may have.
