Different workflows for different boards in the same project.

Hi I'm hoping someone can help with my problem. I have a project with a scrum board and a Kanban board. I have set up a workflow which works well for my scrum board, but I need to use a different workflow for the issues on my Kanban board. I have given the issues on the Kanban board a different issue type, but I can't seem to assign a different workflow to to those issues.

Workflows are determined by issue type, not board, team or type of person using Jira.

To use different workflows, look to the project's "workflow scheme" - this tells the project which workflow to use for each issue type in the project (and has at a minimum a "default" to use for all issue types that you do not define in the scheme)

Hi @Marisa Harwood , first of all, Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The typical question that pops up: Why would you have a different workflow depending on whether you follow via scrum or kanban?

In the Workflow Scheme, you can have different workflows for different issues types, f.e. a separate workflow for stories and tasks.

Please have a look at the following documentation page: Configure workflow schemes

Then, you would filter your scrum and kanban boards and assign each status to a column on the board. This would result in one issue type using the kanban board and another issue type using a scrum board.

Does this answer your question?

Thank you. I'll give that a go. 

The reason I need different workflows is because I have multiple teams. So, I need one workflow for the scrum team and a different one for BA's.
