I've got a mixed team of UX, design, frontend and backend resources, using Jira. We are working in sprints and I have set up the following workflow: backlog --> In progress --> In Reveiw --> Done. My client wants to change it to UX --> Design --> Frontend --> Backend ect. I think that's not refelcting the agile methodology.
