In my Task-workflow in a simple Jira-project, I used to have a status 'Klaar' ('Done' in English'). Yesterday, I deleted this status from the workflow, and added the status 'Gesloten' ('Closed') instead.
But now, the column for 'Klaar' is still there in the project board (business project). I don't know why.
I only use 1 issue type in this project, so only 1 workflow and that doesn't contain 'Klaar' anymore. It's not possible to drag and drop a card in it, the card bounces back.
I still use Klaar in other projects. In the admin settings > Issues > Statuses, it confirms that Klaar is only used in other projects. As expected.
How can I get rid of the 'Klaar'-column in this board?
You need to go to board configuration and remove it. Also check if there are any status mapped to it and move that status to respective column.
Please check this link on configuring columns in a board https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/configure-columns/
Thank you for your answer. As far as I know, board configuration is only available in the more advanced scrum/kanban boards in software projects (like the one in this screenshot). I don't see board configuration options in the type of board my question is about (a project board in a business project, that is). I feel like your answer is about another type of board, it looks very different. Please correct me if I'm wrong!
Thanks for more info, yes you are correct I did provide a Company Managed Scrum/Kanban board configuration. As I couldn't get information on what type of project board that was in screenshot.
For Business template projects we don't have board configurations so the columns come up based on the status available for workflows used in the particular project. Having said that do we have other issue types in the project with different workflows which might have "Done" Status could be one of the reason.
Let me do some research on this, will get back to you.
I did try to reproduce the issue.
In business project there was one default workflow. I made a copy of that workflow then modified to look similar to your workflow. Then I went to workflow scheme of the project, switched the workflow I created to replace the old workflow and published the workflow scheme, it was asked to map the "done" status to "close". After all this when navigated to board the done column was gone and closed column appeared.
Not sure why this issue occurred to you.
Let's see what is the missing piece that could have resulted in this issue.
Addition to my previous comment: I forgot to also copy the workflow inside the copied workflow scheme. I did that, and changed it slighly (I changed the position of the status labels in the diagram a few pixels). Then I switched the workflow scheme for this project to the copied one, and it worked! The 'Klaar'-column has disappeared. It seems that is was indeed a bug.
Thank you for your help, your scheme switching inspired me to try this ;)
