How to add category to the workflow life cycle?


I would like to know How can I add additional category or step to the workflow life cycle screen, such as adding a "QA step" between the "In progress" step and the "Done" step.

First you need to add a status (e.g. "In QA" or something like that)

Then you need to edit your workflow (or create a copy) and add a step linked to that new status, add transitions as well.

Hi Rpandyaram,

Thanks you for your explanation.

I can't find the menu that you mentioned in your comment, do you know where can I find it?

I was referring to the agile board configuration if the work flow that has been set up is simplified work flow.

Under columns , you must be able to see if it is agile simplified workflow that is set:

Please share the screen shot of your agile board at Configure --> Columns

Thank you Udo,
Will this actions will add the step to the below screen as well?

Not sure, that seems to be something releated to jira agile (where I'm not very familiar with) To add a status type 'gg' + statuses (you must be jira adminstrator in order to do so) > now add a new status

Hi Shani,


If you are using Agile Simplified workflow, you can configure the board at Columns.

You can add a new status and add a column straight away from here.

If you are adding customized work flow, your work flow has to be updated with the new status. In this case , the new status will be listed under unmapped statuses.

At agile board, you can add a column and map the newly added status beneath that column.
