When creating a new tracker, you'll need to define its Workflow (see below) in order to properly use it. (To save time doing that -  you can copy an existing tracker's workflow when creating a new one.  To do that, select a tracker in the 'Copy workflow from' drop-down list on the 'New tracker' screen).

On the workflow setup screen, select the role and the tracker for which you want to edit the workflow, then click 'Edit'. The screen lets you select the authorized transitions for the chosen role and tracker. The "Current status" column indicates the initial status of an issue. The "New statuses allowed" columns stand for the statuses that can be applied.

In the above example, Bugs with a New status could be given an Assigned or Resolved status by the Developer role. Those with an Assigned status could get a Resolved status. The status of all the other Bugs cannot be modified by the Developer.
