Closing DONE Tasks and WorkFlow

Hi all,

I'm really new to Jira, I started a new Cloud instance, so I'm working on a Next-Gen Project... I understand I'm in a still growing-up environment, isn't it ? 

I built some task, working on them I put them on a DONE column,... Looks like there's no way to make them disappear from my Kanban. I search in the docs and I found notes about "Closing" or "Solving" tasks, but I'm not able to accomplish this simple task.

At the same time, I saw Workflows, but they are "inactive" and I can't find a way to activate them....

Could someone explain me what clue am I missing, please ? 

Thanks in Advance

issues in a Done column in next-gen projects will be removed automatically from your board and archived after 14 days.

Unfortunately this timing is atm not configurable so feel free to vote on JSWCLOUD-17335 

I'm looking for the same feature. I would like to configure the 14 days to be longer for our scenario.

@fgrande Hi, I'm a Product Manager on Jira Software.

If you had workflows today, what would you do with it?



I don't know exactly.... I have a flow in my mind, but I don't know if it's actually applicable...

I need to learn how WF works to figure out their possibilities....
