What is a "compatible" field configuration or workflow association?

I can't change the type of an issue from the edit screen. The message says "There are no issue types with compatible field configuration and/or workflow associations."

What does it mean for a field configuration or workflow to be "compatible".

It would seem they are compatible, as moving it just keeps everything the same, except for the type. It's a lot of clicking to make a single choice.

Step 1: choose the new type; the status is the same

Step 2: worthless

Step 3: worthless

Step 4: worthless

What does it take to make the field configurations or workflows "compatible"?

They have to be identical.  

In the screenshot you've given, you would need to have Bug and Feature using the same workflow.

Does the field configuration also need to be identical?

I'm afraid so.
