Change default System Filters

Jozef Vandenmooter Jun 20, 2017

It's been a while since this question was asked. Hoping that something's changed in the latest version of JIRA! :)

The My Open Isssues system filter returns all the Issues that have their Resolution field set to Unresolved. That means it also returns issues that are in Closed status that have that field set to that value.

How can we change this filter so that it only returns issues that are actually Open?

Thanks,

Jozef

An issue is open when it has no resolution.  It's closed when it has one.  That's how it is defined in JIRA and you need to set a resolution to tell the system the issue is resolved.

Fair enough. We  have a bunch of users here who disagree though  :P

Thanks for the reply!

They'll need to build their own filters, and not rely on JIRA's reporting functionality.

I find it easier to just get it right, even if I set the resolution for them as part of the workflow and hide as much as possible, so that the data is correct.

Although there's a short essay on why resolution really should have been demoted to a simple "reason" in version 2 of JIRA, that's a different story - the way resolution works now is not going to change.
