To finish activating your workflow, associate the workflow scheme it's in with a project. If an issue type is not defined in the project's issue type scheme, that specific workflow is not used.
Click Switch Scheme and select the relevant workflow scheme from the Scheme list.
Click Associate to begin the migration process. Each issue needs to have a valid status, so you may need to assign statuses to a select number of issues after you switch workflow schemes.
A Jira project must always be associated with a workflow scheme, since all issues must move through a workflow. To disassociate a custom workflow scheme from a project, simply associate that project to the default workflow scheme instead.
This is what I found on the instructions but it doesn't match with my layout.
the point 4 (workflow) it doesn't appear.
Are you using a next-gen project?
They do not support workflow configuration yet https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Agility-articles/Everything-you-want-to-know-about-next-gen-projects/ba-p/894773
I agree with Bastian. This post also tackles workflow configurations in next-gen projects: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Configure-workflow-Nextgen-project/qaq-p/950599
I ran into the same problem, and wasted a lot of time banging my head on the wall. But, finally, I figured it out!
See this documentation:
It states the following:
Before you begin. This page contains information for how to set up and configure company-managed Jira projects. Company-managed Jira projects have different features and capabilities than team-managed Jira projects.
Fortunately, I was just setting up the project I wanted to change the workflow on. I deleted it, create a new one as a "Company Managed" project rather than "Team Managed", and then this "WorkFlow" item actually appeared in the project settings!
Can anyone please let me know if we can associate a workflow to an issue type only (ex: Bug/Defect).
Below is my scenario:
Wanted to have a separate bug workflow which applies only to issue type bug/defects. Because a bug will have re-testing, re-open, closed, rejected and removed status and those will not be applicable for the project status.
So created a new workflow and assigned that to a bug/defect but that isn't listing in active workflows are not assigned to a project for a issue type bug/defect only.
Can anyone please let me know if you have an idea please!
