Hi Shruti, do you see an error when you associate a custom workflow to custom workitems?

All you need to do is change/ select the workflow required for the workitem type and save changes.

Best Regards

It looks like you have switched the workflow for existing work items, which is strongly discouraged. If it's indeed the case, you will not be able to see the label of the state, and cannot invoke any actions against the work item, due to mismatching in the new work flow.
