I've got a really weird problem:
In one of our projects, a workflow is messed up - our "on hold" status is green - (done category), and our "done" status is blue ( "in progress" category"). All I want is to change status categories, so that they match their purpose.
The problem is:
1. I can't change the category of the only "done" category status - because jira doesn't allow that if there is only one green status
2. I can't add a second green status, because jira tells me that there can be only one
What should I do? SCreens for visualization
I was just playing with this (not an avid NG user) and here is a solution I think...
You need to create a new 'done' status but set it to "in progress" category. Maybe call it Done2 for now and rename later. On the board delete the current Done category and select move issues to Done2. Go into the workflow and rename the status and clean things up as necessary.
LMK if it works.
