How do I add new Issue Statuses to the Software Simplified Workflow?

How do I add new Issue Statuses to the Software Simplified Workflow?

Hi All. I’m a fairly new Project Manager, taking over managing an agile web development project. We’re using the Jira Software Simplified Workflow and want to make a couple of modifications. I think originally the statuses were To Do, In Progress, Review and Done. We want the statuses to be:

  • To Do

  • In Progress

  • Review - completed in TEST, needs client review

  • Deploy - client approved in TEST, needs to be deployed to LIVE

  • Resolved - Deployed to LIVE, needs client review

  • Done - Closed by client

The Resolved status is showing in the workflow and is available as an option in the Issue Status dropdown field. Not sure if it was always that way, or the client added it. Now I need to add the Deploy status to the Workflow. I added it in one place, but when I view the Workflow steps, I don’t see it. If I EDIT the Workflow, then I see the Deploy status.


But Deploy is still not an option in the Issue Status dropdown,



and when I click View workflow, I still don’t see the Deploy status.


What am I doing wrong? How do I get Deploy to be available as an Issue Status?

Hi Seema,

Make sure you publish the workflow. I think that is what you are missing.

So edit the workflow and once there, then click on the Publish button.

@John Funk You're absolutely right! I didn't even realize the Publish Workflow link was there! Thanks for your quick response!
