Adding a new status to the Scrum Board


Based on , if a user has the project admin rights , he can add a status to a Scrum board of that project. However the add status button is disabled  when he  tries to configure the board. How can I make add status button available for him that he can add statuses on his project board?

Thank you.

That's not quite what the doc says. The doc says that lets you add a column. See later on:

If you are using Simplified Workflow, then a new status will automatically be created to match your new column.

If you're not using Simplified Workflow, you need jira-admin rights to add statuses, and you can't do that from the board's config. That's doable through the Administration / Issues page.
