i need more info to assist here. Some questions/thoughts...
Thank you Jack,
When I click on 'Edit'issue > Field: Process Status is present, where I tried changing to resolved from the drop-down options.
Here, Issue type - Bug, named as Defect in this scenario.
"are you saying that you cannot transition the issue or are you saying when you do transition to Done/Resolved that the issue still appears in say "my open issues"? If so you need to ensure you are setting the "Resolution" when moving the issue to Done/Resolved."
Here, I have no other option of changing the Status of this issue, and if I change it from Edit - it still remains 'Open'
Under 'More' (refer screenshot)
I only see relatable option of 'Move' -- is this the only way left to resolve ?
Ok so Process Status is some custom field you or someone has created in your instance. I don't know what it's purpose is but, unless you have some automation that triggers on the modification of Process Status to actually change the Status then they are completely decoupled. So if you wish to change the Status you must transition it from Open to the desired status.
As @Pete Singleton inferred, if you are not seeing any transitions for Status (you don't use Edit for this) then your permissions are messed up. Please go to Project settings > permissions and check Transition issues.
Thanks a lot Jack, appreciate !
But, there is a twist to the story, as I see it is only happening for one particular defect, and not others.
Is there something additional setting I should check for this particular defect ?
