If you are referring to Company Managed projects, you can set/configure statuses for projects by going to Settings Icon at the top right  --> Issues.  Under "Issue Attributes" you'll see a section for "Statuses".

is there such thing as Child Issue Task Statuse?

How do I associate with projects?

Andrew Kendris Community Leader Apr 12, 2021

In order to associate a status to a project you need to attribute to the workflow that is associated with that project.

For anyone that steps on this thread in the future, the way to add statuses to a project depends on the type of project you are using:

For Company-managed projects, statuses can be shared between multiple projects/workflows, so these would be the steps to add/create new statuses:

  1. Navigate to the project > Project settings > Workflows > Click to edit the workflow you would like to add the status
  2. Click to create/add status
    P.S: Note there are some limitations when editing active workflows. If you need to add specific incoming transitions, you must create a workflow copy instead. Check the documentation below for more details:
    Active and inactive workflows 

For Team-managed projects, statuses can not be shared between multiple projects, so they are restricted to the project where you create them. These would be the steps to add new statuses:

  1. Navigate to the project > Project settings > Issue types
  2. Select the issue type you want to create the status
  3. At the top-right corner, click to Edit workflow > Add the status you want
