It looks like you are not an admin of that board?   Or the board is a type that does not have configuration.

Im created the project And the board. So, o supost be the admin...
Its a kanban board... So, kanban board doesnt have a configuration?

Kanban boards do, but you might be using a "next gen" project, who's Kanban option does not.

so, i change for sprint board and next gen, and still cant go board settings...

Ok, so we need to know what type of project it is, and what type of board?

board = scrum;

project = Software

Ok, so you need to ask the admins of that board to add you as an admin.

so, im the admintrator...


You might be a system admin, but you're not an admin of that board. These are different things.  Ask the admins of that board to add you as an admin.

Hum, so i created theproject and the board.  So, How can i put my self as admin of the board?


If you created it, then you are an admin of it.

Given that, then ff there is no "configure" option for it, as in your screen-shot, then it is not a Software Kanban board, it is a board that comes with a "Next Gen" project, which do not have configuration options.

so, i created another project,  and another kanbank and next generation . I still cant acess board settings...

There's nothing else I can tell you - if you are an admin (which you are if you created the board), then you have "board settings" as the first option in the ... menu at the top right.  For "classic" boards. 

If you create a next-gen project/board then there are no settings and hence no option.

What do you have in the ... menu?

so, that its..


When i make nextgen i dont have board settings but i have the roadmap. But the interface to make version and epic is not friendly. Exemple: cant configure colors for epics

When i make classic, i dont have roadmap but have the other things.

My goosh

Same problem with me....

So basically, NextGen means worse?

Why would You make something with less functionality?

That is really frustrating. Backlog is essential in most projects, to not flood Your board with cards not yet relevant. That is so bad....

Yes.  Team-managed projects are not really ready to be used by larger organisations or all but the most simple of independent teams.
