Allocating an existing workflow to a new project

Under the current cloud hosted version of Jira, we cannot allocate existing workflow schemes to new projects. Creating a new project creates a new workflow each time, which just generates more work to clean this up.

Earlier guides suggested using JIRA classic as an option when creating a project, however this is no longer available. See also:

It's very rare that different projects will have different workflows. Its far more common for projects to share a common custom workflow scheme, which can be maintained across all the projects.

How is this best accomplished?

I usually use the Shared Configuration option –

I also find it helpful to setup a project without any issues as a template for starting from where I know which schemes are going to be shared amongst multiple projects. This allows each project to then have small amounts of customisation without needing to remember which project is the template.

Classic board has been removed from version 6.7 onward. But still if you wanna use classic boards, you can download a previous version of JIRA and host it in you own server.
