When does JIRA strike through an issue?

It seems that issues are not consistently stroked through when resolved across all JIRA. It shows ok in Agile boards but it doesn't show up stroke through on other areas of the application. How does JIRA identify issues that will be stroked through?

It happens when a resolution is set on the issue. Note that resolution and resolved status are different. Check out

I understand the difference between "Resolved" status and the resolution field. It is set. I have tested this in both JIRA Cloud and Server and in both cases the issue key is not stroke through even though the issue is in a "Resolved" status and the resolution field has been set. Can you verify this in your instance? I'm testing this in JIRA Server 6.2.7 and JIRA Cloud and I'm getting the same results in both.

It works fine for me. Maybe you can add a screenshot?

Here is the screenshot.

If you are looking at the issue navigator, they won't appear as strike-through. But if you are seeing those issues in the list of linked issues or inside a comment, they will be stroked through.

I understand now. This is the expected behavior then. Thanks.

Is it suppose to be when the resolution field has a value.   Unresolved value is really an empty field.
