if yes how to create it

4 answers

Hi @shiva ,

Although your question is not much clear, but if you want to add the new values to resolution field you can go to Administration (Cog icon)->Issues->select resolutions where you will be able to see existing resolutions and below existing resolutions, you will find the 'Add new Resolution' option.

I hope it will help you.

Hi @shiva 

Can you explain you question in detail?

Are you looking to add additional option to the resolution field or create a new custom field with a specific behaviour of system field resolution?

If it a new field, what is the purpose?

Hi @shiva 

The answer is no you cannot create a new resolution field as this is a system field with specific special attributes given to it.

You can however create a custom field named resolution and use this in your project. The problem however is that JIRA would not consider issues using this field resolved which could skew your reports.


hi @shiva ,

You mean a adding a new value to "Resolutions"

or creating a new field like resolution ?

Creating new value



Issue Attributes


There you can add New resolutions.
