The requirement is to have a status on board 'Approval' that only a selected group of people can use to sign off and move to Accepted status in the board. The project is in active status with an active workflow. I have been trying to follow the steps given in the following doc to get the desired solution:
However, in step guide point no.9 there is an option of configure
(the status of approval to set the rule set). I do not get this option displayed in my workflow. I have tried multiple times already.
Looking forward for the solution.
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
The option to add approvals is currently only available for Jira Service Desk.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of the ability to add Approvals on Software and Business projects:

Hi @Rohit Jain
As a alternate approach in software you can add a workflow condition to the Accepted transition.
This can check if the users is in a specific group, a role or a group custom field value.
The transition will be hidden from anyone who doesn't match the condition.
