Minh - try to start with as few status as possible, otherwise they won't be used and cause confusion. But if you are sure that you need all of these status go ahead - 9 status might still even fit on a JIRA board if you have a large monitor ;) Another solution might be to work with different issue types like Analysis, Story, Test, Deployment with simple workflows like Open, In Progress, In Review, Done. Hope that helps?



yah I think Open, In Progress, In Review and Done are pretty simple enough to start, many thanks.

You're welcome - feel free to come back in case of any questions :)
