Assign new issue type to an existing workflow scheme

I have an existing workflow scheme in JIRA with 8 issue types. Now I created a new issue type, the according workflow and would like to activate this issue type.

Somehow I completely forgot how that has to be done, I clicked through several screens, but did not find the feature. What am I missing?

You will have to create a new workflow scheme and migrate the project to the new scheme. You cant add new workflows to active workflow schemes.

I agree. There must be some implementation specific reason. I have no idea!

Thanks for the immediate feedback. Just out of curiosity: What is the reason behind that? I find it rather strange having to migrate just because I added a new issue type. I would understand a migration, if I change existing settings.
