Request: skip Invalid and Wont do resolutions from Changelog

I am writing a changelog and I ahve to open each issue to verify whether there has been some change. I do not want to report Invalid issues as a change. Can Attlassian provide an optional filter to Changelog page?

What's the "changelog" page?  (I ask because there's several things you might be looking at here)

Although, I'm not sure a filter is of that much use to users in general - a lot of use like to see issues that have been written off as invalid in software updates.



Ah, the release notes. 

They cover everything, unfiltered, and that's accurate and what most users want.  If you want to drop them, then your best bet is to reflect the reality of what you're doing.  Search for all the invalid issues and edit them, removing the fix-version (or changing it to something else)

The most persons do not need to be right smile  I understand that a changelog contains a list of changes. Rejected tasks changed nothing so they shall not be included in a changelog.


I do not want to insult anybody, but if some software updates contains them it is just evidence that an author of their changelog did not think.

Atlassian tend to code for the majority of their users, it's not a case of being "right".

I'd say not putting "invalid" things into the release is the best option - you're right about the author of the changelog thinking about it, and the results of that thought should be accuracy - "we didn't do bug X, so we shouldn't include it in the fix version" (ok, not very clean when you're doing Kanban, as that versions everything the same when you release, but it prompts them to think about it)
