You cannot create a board directly for a Business type project. But JIRA allows you 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 so you can use it.  If you are planning on using boards software projects is really what you should use for full functionality.

Doesn't this all sound like a workaround?  Why not allow customers to create their own Kanban board and associate it to the Business project, I see so many advantages of doing this, if someone wants to keep the simple view, let them.  But if someone wants the business workflow but a more complete and complicated kanban board, let them as well, and have them link it to the project.  And now Atlassian is no longer allowing you to create a Buiness project type and then change it to a Software project type.  You have to create a Software project type now so you can integrate a kanban board into the project  So you then have to go and create a new workflow.  It just doesn't make logical sense to me why they are doing this.

Agreed. Especially if some business project types are just quick view lists.

The no brainer move here is to add Kanban board creation capability INSIDE of business projects. Making a board outside and linking it to the project are two unnecessary steps.
