I am quite new to Jira administration so please forgive my incompetence. I have assigned Process Management Workflow to my project (with all the Open/Cancelled/InProgress/Rejected/Under Review/Approved/Done states). But I cannot see the Board (the rectangle icon with three columns - please have a look below) which illustrates all the states - it is supposed to be on the left. How do I add it ?
are you on server or cloud? I'm on cloud so it may be different on server.
In any event let's check a couple other things:
something to note, if your project is a Business type the board you create cannot be associated to the project but only your profile. At least this is the case in Cloud.
This Jira instance is installed on cloud based VM (so is it on server or cloud ? ;-) ).
1. Project type: Business
2. There is no 'Location' in the Board settings (in General)
You are saying that because this is Business project it cannot be associated to the project. But when I go for Create Board it is asking me if I want to create an Agile board from an existing project (please have a look at the picture).
so in General you do not see something like below?
Regardless, let me backup and try to clarify a few things and then rewind to your initial problem.
Now, I'm thinking that you are on server and that this thread may actually be related to your issue but unsure. You indicated your instance is hosted in the cloud but if self-hosted then it is server. Atlassian's Cloud instances will have a url something like company.atlassian.net.
We have hosted jira server (atlassian.com) as well (the main one) where the icon does exist. And after creating the new one it was natural to look for the same feature. I wasn't aware that the server version doesn't have the hosted jira features (as in the link you mentioned).
aha...that explains it. I certainly understand where you would conclude this. However, as this lengthy :-) exchange has shown Server and Cloud look, feel and act quite differently. The icon is what initially thru me off and why I was assuming cloud. I should have gotten to the bottom of this sooner simply by answering the cloud/server question. Oh well, it was fun anyway. ;-)
