Why is the time to resolution not appearing for the new workflow I have created?

I am using two different workflows in Jira, one for our customer requests and one for our tasks; the first one was a default one in Jira, and every email that comes to our support account automatically opens a ticket with this workflow, which starts the time to resolution.

Sometimes we switch ticket from customer request to task and in that case it keeps the resolution time, but if I just create a task it does not start.

Could you explain this "time to resolution"?  There is one built into Jira, but it does not "start" anything, it's calculated from data on the issues, so I suspect you're talking about something else.

This is the time resolution field I am talking about.

From where does Jira pull the information for it?


I'm not sure.  Is that in a Service Desk report or in plain Jira?  What's the column header and the report title?

Is in service desk. the column header is "Time to Resolution"

It's calculated from the time of request creation to the point at which the issue behind the request takes a resolution (i.e. is closed or signed off by the requester)

There's no "start" or "end", there's no data stored for it, it's calculated from those two points in the workflow.

My best guess is that your issues are not having a resolution set, so it can't work out the end point
