Created Vs Resolved chart not showing Done stories

I would like to have the Created Vs Resolved gadget chart show the stories that are marked as Done. Is there anyway to do this using a post action. Do I need to set the resolution of a story to a different state than 'Done'?

I found the issue. We set resolution to 'Done' via post action, however the filter that I was using for the chart data was only using "Resolution in ("To Do", "In Progress"). I changed the filter to include all issues and it works as expected.

Or by including a screen at the very last transition where you make the resolution field required.

Glad it is working for you!

I am using  JIRA Software 7.3.7 and Service desk  3.5.1.

Eventhough there are tickets with done resolution , the reports Created Vs Resolved and gadget Created Vs Resolved does not show the correct counts for resolved tickets..

The resolution field is not hidden in my project.

IS this a bug within jira or I am doing something wrong here?

@Dev PoudelAre you doing it for one project or several projects?

I will suggest you here some triage before thinking it is a bug as filters can be tricky sometimes.

Try a filter at a project level "Created Vs Resolved" see if it is giving you the right count.

Also how do you know it is not giving you the right count?

hi @Fadoua thanks for your attention.


I am using it for single project in service desk.

I know that count was not correct because there are like 50 resolved tickets in a day and the graph shows 2 or 3.

Hi Dev,

My pleasure!

Why don't you create your own filter see if it will give you more accurate info?

Again I try solutions from my end before thinking that there is something wrong with the Gadget.

HI Fadoua, 

I did a search 

project = "Customer Support"  AND resolved >=  startOfMonth() 

it shows only two tickets, however there are more than 50 tickets with resolution done.

 However it works for other projects  which are not part of service desk, but does not seem to work for Service desk project.

Morning Dev,

project = "Customer Support" AND status = Done AND resolution = "Work Complete" and resolutiondate >= startOfMonth()

hi Fadoua,


resolutiondate does not work on my filter.


project = "Customer Support" AND status = Done AND resolution = "Work Complete"


This shows around 50 tickets.

project = "Customer Support" AND status = Done AND resolution = "Work Complete" and resolutiondate >= startOfMonth()

does not show any thing, though these tickets were solved within this month.

Weird that resolution date is not working for you. It should be available in JIRA.

works for other projects on JIRA but fails on project with Service Desk especially resolved and resolutiondate..

Fadoua Community Leader Nov 27, 2017

Then please check your ServiceDesk settings, the JQL I sent you earlier is from a JSD Project.

Fadoua Community Leader Nov 27, 2017

Thinking about it may be you didn't add the resolution date field to your screen in the JSD project

There is a resolution field in customer desk screen and this is not hidden since the beginning.

Which version of Service desk are you using?

Fadoua Community Leader Nov 28, 2017

@Dev PoudelResolution Date is the one I was referring to. Not Resolution field.

I can find resolutiondate and resolved variable when I make a Query.


But there is not such fields like Resolution Date within the system.

How do I get this field to my project screen?

Fadoua Community Leader Nov 29, 2017

It is a system field.

Go to your JSD project screen and then add Resolution Date

once it is available on the screen you can add it to your query.

which version of JSD do you have?

I have Service desk  3.5.1., and I cannot find the field Resolution Date. I have Due date and other fields but Resolution date is missing and I cannot add to my project screen,.

Fadoua Community Leader Nov 29, 2017

Using 3.3.0

okay that's strange why I can't find resolution date field with 3.5.1.

Going to settings and field.. I can't see resolution field.

Do you have any ideas, where can I see it to bring to my screen.

My apology Resolution Date can not be added to a screen, however it is a field available in the JQL query. I just tried it in my JSD project and gave me the right information.


yes I agree, Resolution Date is variable available in JQL query. 

It works fine with other JIRA Scrum projects, but does not work with Service Desk Projects in my case.

What does the issues resolution field show? If it is showing unresolved even if their status is done that's the reason behind your problem

Indeed, the chart doesn't have any function for using anything other than the resolution field.  You need to configure it so that resolution is set when going into "done" and cleared when coming out of it.
