You can add workflow transition post-function to set the resolution on the transition.

Edit workflow, change transition and add post-function named "update field" for field "resolution"

To add a post function to a transition:

  1. Log in as a user with the 'JIRA Administrators' global permission.
  2. Choose  > Issues. Select Workflows to open the Workflows page, which displays all of the workflows in your system.
  3. Click Edit for the workflow that has the transition you wish to change.
  4. In the Workflow Designer, select the transition:

  5. Click Post functions in the properties panel.
  6. Add "Update Issue Field" (Updates one of the issue's fields to a given value)


Or you can use a screen on the transition

If you put the resolution on that screen,

then the user using the transition will be shown the resolution and can set it there.
