In the previous version of JIRA, it was easy enough to create a board in an existing project. You could do it from the project, or you could also go to the "boards" tab in the main nav. However, if I do not already have a board, there is no way to create a new board in the new JIRA UI.
Funny enough, if you do have a board in your project, you can create another by clicking on the three dots in the project's board view.
It makes it difficult to set up a new project, because I now have to create from Scrum or Kanban, and go back and set up the all schemes I need. I would much prefer to copy from an old project structure, and only have to set up the board.
As you mentioned, the 'Create board' option is available on the Boards tab, but this tab is shown only if your project already has a board. So if you have no board, you cannot access the 'Create board' option...
However, you may go to a different project that does have a board (or even create a bogus project if necessary), in order to be able to access the 'Create board' option. Once in the 'Create board' UI, you'll have the chance to indicate which project(s) your new board will include.
This is a huge huge problem for Jira Cloud users that renders the "Create project with shared configuration" option completely useless for the way we use our organization.
The kanban board is an essential component to Jira - why does this template option remove the ability for a board or not have a default blank board like you would normally have when creating a project from scratch?
