When I create a new EPIC on Jira, the status defaults to Backlog which is fine but it also allows me to change status to In progress or done. This eliminates the need for an epic to be approved by the manager before the epic is added to backlog.
We have an approval process internally where the epic is manually assessed by manager and its either approved or declined before its assigned to a sprint.
How do I configure the epic workflow in order to disable In progress or done status codes when a new epic is created.
