Hi @Surya_Akasam

As you say you can not do a bulk edit to set resolution. The solution to this problem is to create a transition from and to the same status named "Set resolution" or alike. At the transition you add a post-function to set resolution as desired. After this has been done, you can do a bulk transition through this transition, which triggers the post function for all 200 issues. 

In the workflow editor it would look something like this:


Hope this helps!

Good luck with your Jira endeavors!

Thanks. It worked for me

If you can find a time when no one is using JIRA (weekends ?) you can add the resolution field to the edit screen, use the bulk update function, and then remove the field. 

The resolution field is not available as a bulk edit even if it is available on the edit screen. Atlassian themselves instruct my solution above for setting a resolution as bulk. See

If you somehow anyhow made this work, please elaborate how you did it.

I did it a long time ago. I guess they changed the software.
