Hello @Syamala Uggina

Thank you for reaching out.

The statuses of a Next-gen project are explicitly related to the board columns of the project since workflows are not editable in Next-gen projects yet.

Basically, all configuration entities in next-gen (Statuses, Priorities, etc) are bound to a single project and are not sharable with other projects, as described in the article below:

Core concepts behind Jira Cloud next-gen projects and ongoing changes to our existing APIs 

That being said, to add new statuses to a specific Next-gen project, you just need to navigate to the project and, on the board view, click in the plus button (+) to add a new column. Consequently, you will create a new status:

P.S: The right-most column of the board will determine what is the final status of your issues in that project. Make sure you placed the correct one there.

Let us know if you have any questions.
