Hello @Marcela Junyent

Thank you for reaching out.

Per your question description, I believe you are talking about a classic Jira project, not Next-gen. Can you confirm that?

Please, allow me to provide you with some concepts so we can confirm we are on the same page here:

In Jira Classic projects, Board columns and Workflow statuses are not necessarily related to each other. Better explaining, you can have multiple workflow statuses mapped to the same board column, or even don't have any mapped status to any columns at all, so the management of the project workflow is not related to the board and the permissions are completely unrelated.

That being said, you must be a project admin to manage/modify a workflow, considering all the projects the workflow is mapped to. In other words, ff the workflow is shared with multiple projects, you must be a project admin on all the related projects.

Here are the steps to edit a workflow:

  1. In the header of your Jira page, click on Projects.
  2. Click on the project(s) where your workflow is mapped to 
  3. Click Project settings > Workflows
  4. Click the pencil icon on the right side of your workflow to properly edit it

For more details about workflows, please check the documentation below:
