Hello @jasnam7 

To create a workflow, you have to go first to ADMINISTRATION OF JIRA, look for the issue option in the left menu, workflow will list all the workflows you have in the jira and you can create from there a new flow as you want, in the right side you will find the button to add a new flow, place the name for your flow and the description and then add, now you are ready to place your states and transitions as you want once you finish you have to create a flow scheme and add the flow you created and the scheme associated with your project.

I hope you find it useful


Go to the marketplace and find some workflow that suitable for your need like this:

Then download it as .jwb file from the marketplace.

Then As you see in your provided link, you can import it to your instance.

If you need more help, let me know.
