Hi @nilesh rokade 

Welcome to community!

The details about the default statuses that are packaged in JIRA are described in https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/what-are-issue-statuses-priorities-and-resolutions/

Accepted

For recruitment projects, this indicates that the candidate has accepted the position. The issue is considered done.

Closed

The issue is considered finished. The resolution is correct. Issues which are closed can be reopened.

 

Note that you can always edit the workflows and customize them as per your requirements. 

Or for user stories: accepted theoretically means that Acceptance testing is complete, while done actually means that there is no work left to be done on the issue.

If you don't need that distinction in your process, feel free to modify the workflow to your needs, as @Fazila Ashraf describes. You should adapt the workflows in Jira to the way you work and not the other way around 😊
