Edit the Resolved Date possibility?

The resolved date is populated automatically when the workflow is set to Closed.

Resolved Date is a system field as well as setting it upon closed.

Is there any possible way to add a post-function, condition, etc. etc. configuration of some kind to allow the Resolved Date to be Edited or Overriden?

Certainly not in configuration.

You could write something that would write the wrong date back over the top of it. And, as Timothy says, you could break it with SQL (stop jira, backup the database, edit the date, restart and reindex).

You may be getting a negative tone here - the point of the resolution date is to record when the issue was resolved. Changing it to something else makes it pointless because it's no longer the resolution date, it's some arbitrary date you put on it.

Also, if you do decide to edit it, then you should also update the issue history with the arbitrary date you are sticking over the top, otherwise it will look totally inconsistent.

ok thank you. thought it wouldn't be possible but wanted to make sure.

Hey Nic, would you be able to point me to your suggestion on what to write to write a date over the resolution date? (You're right about the general point of the resolution date, of course ;-)

No. The only way that I can think of is to edit it in the database.
