Is it possible to enforce a relationship between status and resolution?


I understand that there is no technical connection between a status and a resolution. But from a developer/user perspective, there usually is.

For example, in our team the only valid combination of status and resolution for status "Resolved" is resolution "fixed". All of the other resolutions will be used in our system to indicate a reject with a particular reason or a duplicate.

Is there a way to enforce this?

Thank you,

In a way. Create 2 transitions; 'Resolved and Closed' and 'Other Closed'.
