The screens your mention are completely impossible to find for me. On project settings, I only have name, key and access. and the possibility to delete the project.
No workflow tab available, and even not when creating a project : I can select form a number of templates (Scrum, Kanban, ....) but I cannot select my workflow.
When defining a workflow scheme, I see no way at assign that scheme to a project ...
Totally lost, it seems I can only do pretty standard stuff. I find the interface for setting up such customisations in JIRA far from intuitive ..
don't get me wrong but have you ever had a look a the documentation?
This will get you started creating a workflow:
Then you create a workflow scheme and associate workflows (activate them) with that scheme:
Here you'll find more info on schemes:
Hope that help,
The documentation is scattered everywhere and usually not helpful. Something as simple as changing a Workflow, Screen or Permission Scheme can be quite challenging.
Don't get me wrong, Jira is a great product once configured, but the documentation and support are pitiful at best!
Those links are all OK, but none of them answers the original question: once you have created a Workflow, assigned it to a Workflow Scheme, how do you assign the workflow scheme to a project?

This page is fundamentally misleading and out of date although I eventually found the answer in Settings -> Workflows -> Switch Scheme:
It is this section:
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):
In the sidebar, click Issue type schemes. You'll see which workflow scheme the project currently uses.
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.
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
