I am trying to set up a workflow with approvals but I can't find the approval field for a workflow. The documentation states it should be there, but I don't see it. Using Jira Software Kahban "Tem-managed Software" Project. Can anyone help?
It allows adding one or multi Approvers in your process. When an assignee submits the form in issue this task will pass to the first approver.
Schematically, it looks like this:
Try Online Demo to understand better, or ask me if you have any questions.
Jira Software doesn't have have the approval option/button in workflow.
We need to have another product Jira Service Management to setup approval in workflow, like you have rightly pointed the doc https://support.atlassian.com/jira-service-management-cloud/docs/add-an-approval-to-a-request-type-in-team-managed-projects/
Kanban or Scrum templates are Jira software specific hence they don't have the approval option.
In case if you want to achieve adding approval option. It's not full work around but You can just create a "Approval" status and configure suitable transitions in the workflow.
I hope this helps. !!
