Hi everyone, 

I want to add/ remove some of the defined resolutions and makes this field mandatory.

Is this possible and how?


Thank you in advance

Hi Dimitri !

You can do both of these configurations if you are admin of your instance.

You need to check the Resolution tab in Cog > Issues > Resolution.

For your second question, you can find everything you need here :

It will allow you to create a Field configuration and to make Resolution mandatory.

Hi Flavien and thank for your response!

I went in all of these paths, but I can' t find where I can modify predefined options and made this mandatory field...


You're sill looking at the resolution field here. 

To change the options availble, you need to go to Admin -> Issues -> Resolutions and edit the list in there.

Note that you should NOT make resolution mandatory.  If you try to make it mandatory, you will have to set a resolution as you create an issue, which means that you have resolved it.  You will never have an open issue.

Thank you very much Nic for the notice! 

I will not make it a mandatory field, you are right!
