Simplified Workflow


Would it be possible to remove the ability for a project admin to create new statuses in a Simplified Workflow?

I have a situation where these has been used, and while realizing there are far too many statuses, it must be controlled who can create them.

I'd rather change this than replace the workflow since it is widely used in many projects.

There’s no way to do this.

 I’ll suggest using a workflow scheme that maps a new issue type to a different workflow. This removes the ability to add status but users can still add columns.

Now you can have all workflow  related changes performed by your admin only and they then map the new status to a column.

You can raise a feature request for this at also.
