Converting Multiple JIRA Projects into a new Greenhopper Kanban Workflow

I created a Kanban Workflow with a Test project. The Kanban workflow is correct and operates as I desire. Is there a way to simply take my exisiting 6-8 classic JIRA projects and have them convert inside the new Kanban workflow. I realize the mapping will change in my JIRA projects and it may not match up perfectly but I would manually update those statuses. Is there a way to convert my JIRA projects one by one to my new Kanban workflow?

I see I bring projects into the Kanban workflow by associating a filter that lists each project. Must I manually change my projects workflow to match the new Kanban Board's workflow? Will my JIRA project's workflow change based on the Kanban workflow?

Thanks

I didn't completely get your question. If you need to change the workflow for your project, define a new workflow scheme using the new workflow and simple associate that scheme with the projects.

I have 5 already created JIRA projects that have X workflow. I created a test Kanban Board layout with a test project that is far more simplified then those 5 exisiting projects. I want to make a copy of the new Kanban board and filter the 5 projects to it.

Are you saying to work, I will need to modify the layout of the existing 5 JIRA projects to exactly match those of the new Kanban Board?

Any feedback?

Thank you
