I'm starting using Jira Agile and I'm facing with a little problem.
Until now I've used the "fix version" for all issues that are actually deployed in a new version, ignoring the field for all duplicated or outdated or "not a bug" issues, that is all those issues that I won't fix for whatever reason.
Now, when I use a Kanban board, in the "Done" column I see all those issues, because they are closed but not yet "released" (since they don't have a fix version).
I can't change tha general Kanban filter to exclude issues without fix version, because that way I wouldn't see any of the open issues, so the only solution I've found so far is to put a fix version even for issues that I won't fix.
Do you have a better solution?
There are several resolutions that are similar to "will not fix" such as "duplicated", "not a bug" etc. I would need to review the sub-filter in case I add a similar resolution.
So far a fake "Won't fix" version seems to be the best option, but I'll wait to be sure that this was what Daryl meant.
I don't like very much to setup something that might needs to be reviewed, and working on the subfilter forces me to:
1. Writing the same subfilter for every new Kanban
2. Modify the subfilter if I create a new resolution
Indeed the second case should not be so frequent, but in such a case I would have to review every subfilter of every kanban.
On the other side, using a fake version seems a workaround, not a real solution.
I admit that this is more a philosophic matter than a concrete one, since two suggested solutions achieve the same result.
I think to use your suggestion and switch to the "fake version solution" if yours will require too much effort in maintaining it.
I, too, am having a difficult time understanding what you want to do. We use the resolution of Abandoned, Duplicate, and Won't fix and then close them out with no Fix Version. Therefore, those items get excluded from any filter (e.g. Resolution not in (Abandoned, Duplicate, "Won't Fix") or fixversion is empty) and therefore they don't appear on our boards.
