Can you configure boards for business projects?

Seems like documentation says that boards for business projects are based on workflows. Is there an ability to configure a business project board so that issues show more details?

We cannot create a board directly for a Business type project. But JIRA allows to create a Kanban Board externally outside the project and set it up using a JQL of issues in this project.

You can add a Project shortcut link in Project Slidebar of the new Kanban Board and use it.

can you explain this, i am new to Jira. I don't know how to set an operations board with your explanation 

You will need to explain what you mean by "operations board", and whether you have Jira Software or not?

our team uses Jira software and confluence, I wanted to create a business project for my operations team, I find it difficult to understand how to create a board outside of the project and link it through JQL. 


it will be great if you could help me understand how the set up of the business boards work
