Welcome to the Community!

The status is descriptive of where an issue is in the life-cycle your team is in.  We can't tell you what your status mean to your organisation.

Jira does ship with a number of status, but the three you have named are not off-the-shelf ones, they've been defined by your admins for your teams, based on the process the team wants to work on.

So we can't explain them for you, especially when you haven't give us the context in which they are being used (we'd want to see the workflow they're used in, and ask the teams using the projects what their process is)

Thanks for your quick response. we  are the new team starting Kanban board in Agile jira. I try to create board and created few columns.. 

attached is few work flow i have seen in my peer team.

could you please help definition for each workflow workflow- eng agile-default kanban workflow.PNG

We can't tell you what your process is.

You will need to ask the team who built the workflows what they mean by their name for each status they have created.

"Done" is the only one in there that is a standard off-the-shelf status, and it means what it says - a "done" issue is done. 

sure, i will ask the scrum master.

are you able to give me link or details of standard off the shelf status and the definitions please

Thank you so much for your guidance  

It won't tell you much.  The default status are things like:


Status  Meaning
 Open Open 
 To-do To do 
 In progress  In progress
 Resolved Resolved (issue has a resolution set) 
 Closed Closed (same as done)
