How can I add "Closed" transition instead of "Resolved" to Service Desk requests Form?


Our agents resolve tickets and the requester is supposed to close them after testing the resolution. 

Our service desk request form only gives option to resolve the issue.  How can I change this form to add the closed transition?




I would like "Resolve this issue" form above to link to "Close issue" instead of resolve.

Hi @Pete P 

Is the project you're using classic or next-gen?

You can change the workflow and add in a new status on either but is a bit different depending on which you are using.

Thanks @Stuart C  - Atlassian Jira Project Management Software (v8.5.5#805005-sha1:a6982cf) is what I have not sure if next gen or classic

He is on Server, so it won't be Next-gen  ;-)

@Stuart C  I know how to change the workflow but how can I change the customer facing form so it displays the close transition instead of resolve?

When opening the workflow for edit you can adjust if the transition is shown to a customer or not like this:


For a specific transition (highlighted by the blue line) you can check "Show transition in the customer portal".
If done so (and after saving/publishing the changed workflow) it will look to the customer like this:


Here for example the transition "Close" was added to the customer portal so the customer can close the request themselves.

@Daniel Ebers  - thanks so much!  You made my day :)
