We have a JIRA Service Desk automation that automatically re-opens an issue from "Resolved" status into "Waiting for support" status when a customer makes a comment.
We also allow them to resolve issues by themselves:
Here's the problem: if the customers resolve the issue and adds a comment then it actually changes it to waiting for support, as it triggers the automation. If they resolve it and add no comment then just resolves it. So it doesn't allow them to add closing remarks.
Why is that? What am I missing here?
look at your workflow post function. For sure what is happening is the automation is running after the issue has transitioned to Resolved. The comment is being process after the transition to resolved.
Question - why are you using automation and comment to reopen rather than adding the reopen link on the portal? Maybe to allow reopening via email?
