That does not make sense.  A status is the current status of an issue.  An issue will only have one status at a time.

Thanks for the follow up, let me try to explain this again...


We have a "in progress" status (swim lane) for any issue, my developer wants to have the ability to add a sub status- QA or US Validation with in the "in progress" lane, is this possible without scripting 

A sub-status doesn't really do much for you, it's just a field.

You could base a swimlane on the custom field instead, but you'd lose the in-progress swimlane.  Or you could meld them and have two swimlanes (jql would be status = x and field = y, and status = x and field != y)
