I've seen several threads about the need to have a status in the Resolution Field in order for a closed ticket to be considered truly closed.
I've also seen a number of members suggest we simply remove the "RESOLUTION" field to avoid having duplicate statuses or tickets that are both open and closed.
Given I'm only learning this now, and now I already have closed tickets with empty resolutions, I need help on HOW to close those tickets and go back update the resolution field to get them to show closed/crossed out in the backlog.
It's the same answers you've found elsewhere -
First, Correct the workflow so that it sets resolution correctly (either by asking the user in a transition screen, or setting itin a post function
Bulk edit is your friend in both of these
Whereever you found the advice to ignore the resolution field, they are utterly, totally and completely wrong. Because an issue with no resolution is NOT closed, and ALL the reporting in JIRA Core and most of it in Agile, Portfolio and Service desk will not work.
