If there’s a status I’ve added for a project which I have subsequently deleted, in order to do some house keeping, how do I remove the status if doesn’t have a ‘delete' link because some status have ‘delete' and ‘edit' links whereas others only have ‘edit' links only ( https://xyz.atlassian.net/secure/admin/ViewStatuses.jspa ). Also once you define a status, is it only for a project or you can use the same status with a different project.
I'm trying to understand what you said. Previously I had removed the projects, and then navigating to 'Issues -> Workflows' revealed that it's empty (ie no workflows), therefore I would assume there are no statuses linked to any workflows because there are no workflows under issues/workflows. What am I still missing...
You need to look at the workflows. Not projects.
Go to admin -> workflows and look again. You simply cannot have "no workflows" as Jira ships with one that can't be deleted or changed.
It might be the expanded area you've missed here. The list of workflows is in two parts - "active" at the top, in an expanded area, then "inactive" below, which is collapsed by default.
This time round I am having some problems with removing a status which is associated with an active workflow.
These are the steps I took :
I created a column (test-z) and created an associated status (test-z). I then deleted the same column, but not clear on what are the steps to delete the status (test-z).
I went to the 'status' page ( https://xyz.atlassian.net/secure/admin/ViewStatuses.jspa ) and clicked '1 associated workflow' link in the same row as test-z, which then showed a pop-up ( Associated workflows for test-z).
I then clicked the link in the pop-up ( https://xyz.atlassian.net/secure/admin/ViewWorkflowSteps.jspa?workflowMode=live&workflowName=Software%20Simplified%20Workflow%20for%20Project%20DOUB ) which takes me to the 'workflows' page. I am now able to see test-z, but unable to edit the status here directly on the same page.
I then clicked the 'edit' link towards the top right corner ( https://xyz.atlassian.net/secure/admin/workflows/WorkflowDesigner.jspa?workflowMode=draft&wfName=Software+Simplified+Workflow+for+Project+DOUB ) but the 'test-z' status is not present here within the diagram, therefore I cannot remove it from here.
