Resolution shows Unresolved in search view when issues has a resolution

Since we upgraded from 5.0 to 5.2.6 we experience that the resolution show Unresolved on ~50% of our issues in the search view. Looking at issue details, it shows resolution Fixed and has a resolution date.

The following query:

project = POK AND issuetype = Bug AND resolution = Unresolved AND affectedVersion < 9.0 AND priority = 2-High

Gives a result like this:

T Key Summary Status P Resolution Created Updated Resolved


Bug POK-20826 Client get stuck Verified 2-High Unresolved 2013-02-11 2013-02-19

This causes major confusion, and we need to get this fixed ASAP.

Have tried to use the built-in support tool, but it does not seem to work. You have not responded.

If the issue was edited after the workflow transition, then it was displayed correctly in the search.

The resolution was to move the "Update Issue Field " post function (The Resolution of the issue will be set to Fixed. ) to the top of the list. Then re-index.

By some reason, this was not a problem up to Jira 5.0.

just to understand it correctly..

you mean your jql result shows wrong results?

if you view POK-20826 the resolution is "Fixed" but issue navigator shows it is Unresolved?

Sounds like an indexing problem... does the issue go away for one particular issue if you edit the issue, then query for it in the issue navigator?

The other thing to test is a full reindex but as that takes a long time and causes an outage I'm suggesting the above.

I think I found the cause. The resolution was set as the last action in a post function (after the reindex issue). It has worked before the upgrade, but I think this changed the rules.
