Different workflow for epics and tasks in Jira next gen

Hi, I would like to define a separate workflow for the epics in my project that is different to the workflow of tasks and stories. I found hints that it is possible in Jira in general but could not manage to do it in my environment --> Jira Cloud / next gen project.

Any help is welcome!

Thank you!

This is available in Team managed Projects as of August 2021 :) 

Do you have a link that shows how to do this?

@JAKE @Daniel Ebers @Pramodh M this is the feature suggestion to follow for having a dedicated workflow for epics... 
We have a team actively working on it!

It's just been made available! Let me know if you have any problems :) 

Can different workflows be defined for different Epics of a same Project? 

Reason for this Feature: As each Epic can have a unique Lifecycle/Workflow. So in order to successfully manage all Epics of a Project we need this Feature.

A separate workflow is not available for each issue type in Next-Gen Projects

All the issue types have a single workflow here.

Please follow the documentation here for more reference

There is a open Sub-Task with the idea of providing the option to create workflow schemes in next-gen projects:

You could watch it's progress - unfortunately it is not directly visible from there when action is taken upon it.
