For example, here is the text that appears at the top of the resolution screen when an Issue is "Closed"
Closing an issue indicates that there is no more work to be done on it, and that it has been verified as complete.
As far as I see, it is using the reserved jira.i18n.description property.
For Resolve and Close, you should be able to change the related i18N values of resolveissue.desc.line1 and closeissue.desc. I haven't tested it though. For custom transitions, you might have to edit the XML as it doesn't allow the reserved property to be added via UI.
I must be missing something...
But why doesn't the screen shot I attach show up!?!
To "Close Issue" I attempted to add...
Property Key jira.i18n.closeissue.desc.line1
Also tried: jira.i18n.closeissue.desc
I got an error message that said "Key starts with 'jira,' but is not known to JIRA
I guess I got a bit technical! You can't configure it from UI is the short answer.
If you want to just modify the description for Resolve or Close transitions, you can do that by modifying the i18n files. If you want to add a description on custom ones, you will have to try modifying the workflow XMLs directly.
I am on on-demand user...does this mean I cannot get my workflow screens to inherit the text I specify on the workflow? i can download and read the xml, but even if I could edit it, there's no way to upload it into JIRA. Any workaround or am I out of luck? See screens below for some detail.
@GeorgeCC, the enhancement request you provide above seems to be a dead link. Did you paste the incorrect number here?
