How can I add such a "workflow" board to our Software projects? I only see them on Business type projects unfortunately, while they are great!

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Working with boards

Title says it all. When we have a project with project type: Business, we get a "Board" link in the sidemenu, that will visualize all issues based on our workflow scheme. This is awesome, but this feature is missing for projects with project type: Software.

How can I enable this?

Thanks in advance!

If you are using JIRA cloud and have a 'Software' project, you should see a 'Create board' link below your project name:


If you click this and create a Kanban board, you'll get something like the 'Board' you see on "Business" projects.

Hope that helps.
