Resolution Status Jira 4.2.3 to 5.2

Our old workflows set the Resolution status to 8. Is there a way to find what the old 4.2.3 values correspond to in version 5.2

Is there a table list for example Resolution value of 8 is now DELIVERED Status?

See below workflow transition Post Function

This is a slightly confused question. You use the phrase "resolution status", which is unclear in general, but when used in a Jira context, is dreadful. Resolution has a specific meaning. Status has a specific meaning. They are separate, distinct things which don't have any solid direct technical relationship. You can quite easily set up a situation where an issue can have status 1,2,3,4 or 5, and while it's in any of those status, have a resolution of X, Y, Z or none.

However, there's an easy answer to the main part of your question

> what the old 4.2.3 values correspond to in version 5.2

The upgrade does not change the underlying IDs unless you're coming from a REALLY old version. Resolution 8 in version 3.8 will land you with Resolution 8 in version 5.1 (and yes, I've recently done an upgrade that does that!)

I can see your status and resolution in your posting, but I'm not actually sure that there is a question there. You don't need to think about mapping, the upgrade hasn't changed anything. But you probably do need to reread your list of status, and the list of resolutions, to see what they're doing.
