We're a small company which has just started with Jira Cloud. We've created a bunch of Next-gen projects and have setup a Kanban board based on a custom filter so that we can manage issues across all our projects.
The problem I'm having is that the Next-gen projects only come with To Do, In Progress and Done statuses and in order to use the Kanban backlog I need an additional status (eg. "Ready for Development").
I can't find any documentation on where to add new statuses to Next-gen projects?
I can't see anything in the individual project settings and when I go to the global workflow settings there isn't an active workflow associated with my Next-gen projects.
I assume I'm missing something obvious?
I'm a PM at Atlassian, and I'm excited to tell you that we're currently working on adding a new Edit Workflow feature to next-gen projects!
We still have a bit of work to do, but you can watch this ticket to get updates on our progress.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with anything you're hoping to see in next-gen workflows.
Next-Gen Projects in Jira Cloud is created to mainly focus on quick set-up, easy to configure projects. There is no workflow assigned to the project(they might enhance this)

You can add a new status directly on your board. Simply add a new column, and drag and drop it into the spot you want. Next-gen projects support neat, linear workflows at the moment. More workflow configuration is coming soon.
@David Markowski While creating Next-gen project, in the left side bar we can select the template eg: Scrum, Kanban or Incident Management.
These are predefined by Atlassian for simple use. For any advanced configuration we have Jira Classic projects.

Well, of course you can make the default configuration of the Next-gen in the best way you think, but not to allow to modify this configurations is very unprofessional. You are blocking the work of the people in this way. Jira should be enough flexible to cover all the different work flows, also with the next-gen products.
