Hi @Jnanendra Dewan,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The built in approval process in the workflow is only available for  Jira Service Management projects. for other Jira projects you could either use automation and workflow statuses to accomplish this, or you could use one of the apps offered on the Marketplace that adds approvals.

Thanks @Mikael Sandberg for the reply, My Jira instance is a Data Center hosting and definitely one of the solution I have seen is to use the extension “Jira Misc Workflow Extensions(JMWE)” But here I need to have the “Previous Status Validator”. Actually I am looking some kind of app extension which can give me features as add approver and add approval as a transition, which is some kind of similar to Jira Service Management project of cloud.

Kindly suggest which app in the marketplace will give me above mentioned features for my data center hosting jira instance ?

Based on the descriptions of the available apps WorkflowWise and Approvals looks to have the features you are looking for. Both seems to be able to implement the approval as part of a workflow transition.
