You can officially submit one in the JIRA public issue tracker via support.atlassian.com.
Curious though, what do you want to accomplish with this DoD Policies for each column? You know that these columns are configured to show certain issue statuses you set them to be and each status can have "Conditions" before it is moved to that status.
This is one of the 6 core practices of Kanban - making process policies explicit - and having exit policies / DoD per column is a key part of that, that many of the other Kanban vendors already have setup - eg. https://www.rallydev.com/blog/sites/rallydev.com.blog/files/productblog/2012/07/Kanban_Policies.jpeg
This allows the team to set policies and make it explicit / visual. The conditions are not JIRA conditions, but team DoD agreements, which evolve on a daily basis with some Kanban teams.
I voted for your issue Eshwar. I agree this is needed. I also have policies on my Scrum boards, so it shouldn't be limited to Kanban.
For the rest: 1. I don't like my tool to enforce policies by restricting columns. We are simulating physical boards that have an any column to any column by design. Every board we use embraces that any column to any column philosophy.
2. Yes, just a textual policy is what is needed. Make it a mouse over. When you mouse over the column name, the policy pops up so you can verbally ask, either yourself or your peer, did you meet the policy?
We do this all the time in our stand ups, or even as we move work on our own. Without this feature, we have to record our policies in some word doc or confluence page, then go find it if we want to remember the policy checklists.
Make policies explicit is a great part of Kanban.
