I want to add "status" and "resolution" on my JIRA tickets (I am the person who created JIRA account for my organization, so I definitely gave myself all the rights and view privileges)
Right now, I can't see status or resolution when creating a ticket (sometimes we have to log tickets that are really far-off-to-the-future enhancements and we will not attempt them anytime soon).
I can see status in the pop up and page view of a ticket that has already been created, but not the resolution.
I can't seem to find the resolution dropdown to add in settings
resolution is a special field and should NEVER be on any screen except the view screen and transitioln screen where it is to be set. It always show on the issue details screen as either unresolved or resolve value
Resolution Field can't be made optional. DO NOT put the field on any screen except the one presented in the transition where it is to be set. Resolution is a special field in JIRA. It has an initial value of ‘Unresolved’, which means the field is NULL in the database. It is ALWAYS required when it appears on the screen. ONLY display it on the screen during a transition to the status where you want it set. Once it is set the issue ID will appear with as
strikethrough. If you re-open an issue the transition from closed to reopen needs to have a post function to CLEAR the resolution field to set it back to Unresolved.
Limiting resolution options
Use the jira.field.resolution.include workflow property
for exampl jira.field.resolution.include =1,2,3 where 1,2,3 are the resolution ids
Whoever setup the workflow should have a transition were the resolution should be set and present a screen during the transition to do so. In some cases, the resolution is set in a post function so you never see it presented, but those are rare. Status is simply the step (status) in the workflow. You don't set it. Talk to your JIRA admin to find out where he is setting it. It's possible he isn't providing a place to set it. I've seen that happen with new admins.
Yes that is your resolution. Assuming this is a Classic project (not next gen) then, in order to allow a user to choose the Resolution you need to edit the workflow and on the transition going to Done status you need to add a screen. Do this by double-clicking the transition and you will see the “screen” option. Now before doing this be sure you have a screen that can be used that exposes the Resolution field. If not then create a screen for this purpose. There is good documentation on Atlassian site for this if needed.
