Cannot set issue resolution


I use JIRA 5.1.6 and need to modify resolution for some issues by using groovy script. My code looks like

issueId = "ABC-123"
Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueId)
newIssueResolution = issueSubTask.getResolutionObject()

boolean wasIndexing = ImportUtils.isIndexIssues()

// be sure indexing is on




System.out.println(issue.getKey() + " HAS NEW " + issue.getResolutionObject().getName() + "  resolution")

and in the JIRA logs i can see that println returns correct NEW resolution, but in JIRA issue still has OLD resolution.

Could you please advise what is wrong here?

Thank you.

Cheers, Georgiy

You have to call after updating the issue, before reindexing. BTW the issue class should be MutableIssue if you want to modify the issue.


is what I've been missing :)

Thank you very much!
