This is because the queues are based on resolution, not based on Status.

So the closed tickets don't have a resolution set.

Hello @Thirumala Rao Padilam 

Like Dirk and Laurens said is correct queues are based on resolution, and you is not set, probably missing a workflow post-function at the time, anyway here is how to fix it.


You need to add a post function to transition Resolved/Closed post-function that will set the resolution to Done.

To edit old issues with unresolved resolution follow these steps

Bulk edit resolution

What you need to do is bulk edit the issues, but you need to edit the workflow first.

I don't know if you are using done or closed or resolved as an end status, I'll write the example in with closed but it's all the same.

1. Add a new transition from CLOSED to CLOSED and name it Done Fix on this transition add a post-function that sets the issue resolution to DONE

2.  publish the workflow, you can save a copy 

3. Go to issue navigator find all issues that are in status CLOSED and resolution is Unresolved

4. In the top right corner, you will see Tools click on that bulk change

5. Select all issues

6. Choose transition issues -> choose Done fix

7. Choose not to send an email for this change if it offers


After you do this bulk edit you can remove Done Fix transition from workflow, that transition was necessary for fixing the error via bulk edit, future/new issues won't have this problem since you set the resolution before CLOSE.

Hi @Olga Videc  

It shows no options available and I'm unable to add anything new in the transition,

It is more like a search bar.

You need to edit the workflow.

Are you a Jira admin? Who administers your Jira or project?

Also, does this happen to newly crated tickets? If not you could reopen those three and close them again, but watch for re-open notification.

If you are not in charge of administering your project please contact the person responsible and tell him to change these three issues resolution, she/he will know what to do.

BR, Olga

Oh okay, I'm the jira site admin.

Hey @Thirumala Rao Padilam ,

well you're viewing the All Open queue. Could you check the definition of that queue?

Often the "Resolution" field is used and if you didn't set that when Closing the issues they will remain visible in the queue.

So I'd say, check what the filter is on that queue and adjust accordingly.
