How do I add Status button back to the workflow

Did something update in Jira overnight? The "status" button is missing from my Columns settings. How do I get it back?

Hello @Paul Spaeth ,

I'm not sure where you say the status button is missing? Maybe you can provide more information and screenshots, such as:

1. Column configuration in JQL(Issue query)?

2. Change status button in Issue detail screen ?

3. Columns and states mapping in the board configuration ?

3- Columns and States mapping in the board config. It has an "Add Column" button but no more "Add Status" button.  When I add a Column it says "This column will not show on the board without a status" - But I can't add a status with no "Add Status" button! 


It used to always be there... 

Here's a screenshot. Kanban Board -> Board Settings -> Columns

Hi @Paul Spaeth ,

Note that the Add Status button is only available if you have the JIRA 'Project Administrator' permission for this board's project. See Permissions overview for more information.
