JIRA we are using has Resolution field. As JIRA is used accross multiple portfolio, few of them require RESOLUTION field to be Optional. I do not have option to edit the field to Optional/Required in field configuration screen. Attached is the screenshot.
Can someone please help me understand why is this field non editable.
The resolution field has special rules around it such as:
1) if it is included in a screen the user must set it
2) if it's not included in a screen, the field wont be required
3) You cannot clear the resolution field via a screen once it is set. It can be cleared with a workflow post function.
Best guess is that since the field itself requires a user to select a value, allowing for it to be set to required will result in users having to set a value to the field when there may not be any resolution yet. To extend the field to allow users to set it to no resolution would result in the resolution possibly not being set when the issue is transitioned to a done state.
All JIRA's have and use the Resolution field. It's a system field, built in, and it's quite important as it is the field that tells the whole of JIRA if an issue is done or not.
It is always optional.
But, if you put it on a screen, it is defaulted and cannot be blanked out.
