Hi Ratih,

That's just a warning message. It doesn't mean you can't change the workflow. You would edit the workflow to add a new status and transitions.

What type of project are you using? Team-managed? Company-managed? Jira Work Management? 

Hi John


I am using company managed

For Company-managed projects, go to Settings > Issues > Workflows.

Then search for the workflow used by that project that you want to change.

Then click on edit. You should be able to change it there. Be sure to Publish it when you are done!

Hi @ratih 

Only if the board is using Simplified Workflow and you are a project administrator on the project you are working on with the board you will have the button available to add a status.

You can check the documentation here

I hope it will help you. Regards
