Why does the Resolution of a ticket automatically change to Completed when an agent edits a ticket?


Any idea why the resolution of a ticket is automatically triggered to completed when an agent edits a ticket and adds a component that is not part of JIRA request template? 

This is not an issue if the agent edits a ticket component that is part of JIRA request template.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

My guess is that an inexperienced administrator has added the resolution field to the edit screen.

This is something you should never do, but I'm afraid Atlassian have never coded to stop us doing it (not even a warning), or written much into the docs, so it is a really easy mistake to make.  Most of us learned it the hard way - we added it to a screen and watched it corrupt all our data.  (That sounds like I'm being smug about not making the mistake, which could not be further from the truth, I did it in a Jira 2 install)

To fix it, go to project admin, find the "screens" section and look at every screen that is associated with "create" or "edit".  You need to remove the resolution field from all of them.  (View does not matter)
