Can I create custom aliases for resolution field values? Edited

Is it possible to rename the values of the resolutions in a transition? I want to exclude some and rename some so instead of Completed, Wont do, Duplicate, Done, etc.


I only want this for one project though, which is why I want to use an alias for the field value

I use the INCLUDE option in the workflow properties expressly to avoid having to rework them when a new resolution is added for another issue type or project. 

Thank you, so using include will only allow the included resolution values to show up. I haven't tested it yet but I hope this works

Hi Michael,


Yes, it is possible.


Regarding rename, better way is add additional resolution, and exclude this resolution from other workflows.

I have many projects and many workflows, exlcuding the new resolution values from every other worklfow seems daunting and error-prone. Is there no other option such as jira.field.resolution.rename? I am not finding anything but hopeful it is just undocumented
