Can I create new Release Statuses?

I've been asked by management to figure out if I can create new release statuses. NOT workflow statuses for a ticket, but for the actual Release.

Currently, there is Unreleased, Released, and Archived. 

What if I wanted to add one more?  Like, "On Hold"   or    "Cancelled"?

@Rosa M Fossi, AFAIK there is no way to add release statuses. I took a quick look and found the Release Board for Jira addon that looks like it might provide a solution. Have a look and see.

I'll take a look at the add-on. Thanks!

I just wanted to follow up and let you know that I tried out the add-on.  It has potential... but we terminated the trial since some key features were missing for us.  I've provided feedback to the developer. 

Marking your post as solution since it is the closest available at this time and may be useful for someone else. 

This is a rather old topic, wondering if there are updates and if there are more flexible solutions by now.

Some use cases which we're looking into: 

- A specific release might be an engineering build vs. release candidate

- A release has made it to "Field trials" 

We move releases into Staging, and then they become Production. They're subsets of "Released" and right now I can't differentiate them. Also, would be nice show a release in "QA", vs just not released

You can not add statuses to releases/versions.
