Add workflow to my project

I had a hard time to configure workflow in my project. I can create workflow and workflow schema. But I can not associate the workflow schema to my project.

Why is it so hard to configure? I looked at youtude and online help. But under my project, there is no workflow button. 

Please help

HI @Sam Xia

Welcome to the Community!

To associate or to do the modifications in the workflow or workflow scheme you need to have Jira admin rights.

Please confirm this and if so then have a look at the below Kb.

If you can create a workflow from scratch, then you are a Jira admin.  But if the workflow option doesn't appear in the configuration, then your project is an "independent" type project, which don't accept workflows or other config that business, software or service desk projects do.

Hi Nic, thanks for the quick answer. Can I change project type? My project is a software project.

Yes, in the project header, you can set it to business/core or Service Desk.

Where is the header? not sure what to do.

Go to the project.  Click settings, and the select the first option of project settings.

This option is not available on the current version of JIRA. Is deleting the project really the only option?

I'm going to guess your project is a "team-managed (next-gen)" project.  If so, then that's the current name for what evolved out of "independent" projects, and the answer is the same - there's no workflow (directly).

You'll either need to build your flow the team-managed way or swap to using a company-managed (classic) project.  

You can't convert projects, but you can set up a new one of the other type and bulk-move all the issues to it.

Thanks Nic and Yogesh for the help.

I ended up creating a new project and the workflow works. Now I have to migrate all tickets from one project to another.
