Our JIRA instance is pretty polluted with various statuses and resolutions that basically mean the same thing but are named differently. This makes for a non-standard workflow and different semantics between projects.
We'd like to clean this up as much as possible and try to consolidate to a common, de facto standard within the company. But can I somehow merge two statuses? Can I designate one to be the same as the other and have JIRA automagically conform both fields and realign the projects and workflows using the two?
Resolutions are easy - you can delete a resolution and JIRA will say "what should I change existing values to" and do the work for you.
Status are not so quick. You will have to make a copy of each workflow using an unwanted status, remove the unwanted one(s) and then replace the old workflow with the new one in the project that uses it. JIRA will again ask you what status to move issues to, so that's not too painful, but the workflow edits would be "fun"
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
