Your admins have broken your system.

You must remove the resolution field from all of your Create and Edit screens immediately.

You should also check the list of resolutions in Admin -> Issues -> Resolution.  If you have "unresolved" listed, you must rename it to something like "do not use this" immediately.

Check and fix both of these things as soon as, then we can start talking about undoing the damage in your data.

I did find the solution for my 'resolution'-problem, although I think sometimes it's hard to find some basic stuff like this in the Jira-documentation.

To find out that you need a Post function on a Workflow to change the resolution is quite difficult. I do understand that there are raised 'hundreds of questions' about this...
