best way to "resolve" an issue with a workflow

issue's are not "resolving". I have close on my workflow, but when a issue is closed it isn't resolved.

What is the best way to make this happen in a workflow,for example, when I move from the next to the last status to close it will mark the issue resolved?

Hi John,

Add Resolution Screen on Closed or Resolved Status or set postfunction in workflow to set Resolution when status is resolved or closed


Taha, I am in the postfunction area, what option do I choose? I am guessing "update issue field", but then what?

Yes, select "Update issue field" and in issue field select "Resolution" Field value - Fixed or whatever is appropriate in your case Taha

An issue is resolved when there is a value in the Resolution field. What you need to do is add a screen that contains the field Resolution in the transition to Closed, so that users can select the appropriate resolution (Fixed, Not a Bug etc.)

If you want to enforce a specific resolution, here's the doc:

Thanks, I was able to go into postfunction of my workflow and set resolution to fixed. Now I can see my issues resolved.

thanks for your help.
