Hi @Adriana Rašovcová 

After creating the workflow you need to add it to a workflow scheme where you need to map it to an Issue Type. After that apply the workflow scheme to you project(s). The link has the details.


Thank you for your answer. My problem is that I don't see field "Workflows" on the left of the Project Summary page (see picture). Do you think that it's because of a lack of license, please? Screenshot 2019-11-28 at 21.39.09.png

Hello Adriana,

From your picture, it seems that you are using a next-gen project instead of a classic project.

Currently, on Jira it is not possible to manage workflows while using next-gen projects, however, they are already working on something related to it and you can check their track on the ticket below:

The idea behind next-gen projects is to empower the project owners themselves to customize their projects based on their unique needs without bothering a Jira admin to help them. They can easily add or remove fields to their issue types, set up some interesting automated rules and more.

That being said, with next-gen projects you create columns directly on the board, instead of managing workflows. In case you would like to create a customizable workflow, the best approach would be to create a classic project where you are going to be able to create and customize your own workflow.

To check how to work with your workflow you can check the documentation below:

Hope it helps, Adriana.

Have a nice day!
