In custom workflow transition get a "Resolving issue ..." message but new status is not a Complete Status

We have a custom workflow. In one of the transitions from an "In progress" status to another "In progress" status at the top of the transition screen we get an informational window telling us "Resolving an issue indicates that the developers are satisfied the issue is finished.".

But we are NOT resolving the issue.

There are no properties, conditions or validators associated with the transition.

The same screen is used throughout the workflow and this is the only transition in which we get the informational box.

Any ideas how to get rid of this message?

This message is associated with the transition itself and is created when you clone or edit the existing "Resolve" transition. When I created a new transition from scratch the message went away.

Try to create your screen from scratch and add all the related fields within.



Perfect. Thanks.
