How to configure "Time to close after resolution" SLA ?


I need to auto-close my incident (issues) from their resolved status after x period of time.  I notice there is a built-in SLA to do this very thing.  I am having difficulties configuring it for some reason.  I have set it to auto-close after 1 minute after status = resolved.  and nothing happens.  


Can someone help point the error in my ways?

Hi @Pete P 

The SLA's are only timers. They can be used to check breaches etc but don't perform actions.

Look at the Automation menu for actions to be performed


Thanks @Tom Lister  I was able to get this working finally.  I had selected the wrong transition in the THEN portion of the automation.  "Close Issue" vs "Close" so it was erroring out as there was no "Close Issue" transition in the workflow.  Not sure why it came up in the picklist.
