Resolution date is not set

I have two projects in JIRA which use the 'Automation for JIRA' plugin so set the resolution to a desired value based on a specific transition.

My assumption would be that the field 'resolution date' would be filled automatically in this action. In one of the projects this is the case. In the other project the fields is empty. A difference I can not understand. The resolution is set succesfully to the proper value.

Is both cases no screen is required to do the transition to the desired state, but that should matter.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can find the cause to this issue and even better a solution?

I would have a look at the workflow post functions for the issues, where the resolution is not set. There could be a post function from a plugin.

If you have plugins installed in your Jira, it could be any of these plugins doing the thing. You can copy your production instance to a staging instance and switch to safe mode. Then have a look how the resolution date behaves. If everything is fine, then it should be one of the plugins. You can enable plugins one by one and find the plugin.

Hi @Ad Smeets!
I have the same problem. Could you share, how did you solve it?
Which plugins or post functions prevented the resolution date?

Hi Andrew,

Tried a lot of things with Automation for JIRA but none of them worked flawless. I even got a confirmation that this does not work as I expected.

So in the end I resolved it by using the post functions in JIRA.  They work fine and all the time.

I have resolved this problem by adding Resolution to  Transition issue

@Ad Smeets without details it is hard to say. Most likely the workflow in the other project is more complex, maybe the status category of the end status is not correct, maybe something else.
