Hi @Anuradha Yadav 

It is not available on Cloud. I suggest you vote this issue.


Thanks @Tansu Akdeniz ,

I saw the link you provided of the issue. It's bad actually we can not provide the permission.

Hi @Anuradha Yadav  - if the project uses the Simplified Workflow created with the project, then a Project Administrator should be able to modify the workflow. If the workflow is shared with other projects, then it can only be edited by a Jira Administrator.

okay let me check on this.



I see it is shared by single project but still Project admin is unable to edit it

Did you follow the guidance in the link I sent? For Simplified workflows the the Project Administrator actually modifies it through the board settings. 

Oh sorry.. i didn't login as Project administrator. Now i see the board settings option available for the project administrator.

I will ask the project administrator to edit via board settings. Thanks
