When closing an issue I get the field Comment and can't delete that

JIRA 6.4.12

The transition to close an issue has it's own screen. This screen ONLY has the field "Resolution".

When using this transition, I get a screen with Resolution AND a comment. Where can I delete that?

All edit type screens put the comment option in front of the user, if the user has "comment on issue" permission.  It's useful for most cases - I often find "fixed" is too short a description for how I resolved an issue.

I think you could disable the permission on that transition by using workflow properties on it, but I'm not actually sure - I've only every done that on status (stopping people pointlessly commenting on closed issues)

Hi Nic,

I will try that last thing, but I think you still get the field Comment but when you want to comment, you get an error that you don't have the permission. So you won't get any further. 

I think I'm gonna evaluatie my workflow and perhaps remove the screen in that step.
