Can I move away from simplified workflow and still use sprints?


We're using JIRA Agile and its simplified workflows.

I now wish to add a step "In review" and prevent developers to bypass that step.

Can I just edit the current workflow, or create a new workflow without "breaking" JIRA Agile?


Thanks for the help,

Hi Julien, 

Yes, you can. Just after you've edited and published the workflow, run a background reindex and after, map the new status on the board (JIRA Agile Board >> Configure > Columns). That should do the trick! smile

Please let us know how it goes!

Thanks Elise!

I really appreciate.

I'm waiting for the devs to leave the office and I'll create the new workflow.

I'll keep you posted smile
