transitioning issue to 'done' in Greenhopper does not update 'resolution' field in JIRA?

we recently started using GH to manage an existing JIRA project. when i drag an issue on a Scrum Rapid Board from 'in-progress' to 'done' I see that issue's status is updated 'in-progress' to 'resolved' but 'Resolution' field remains 'unresolved' - which is confusing. Is there a way to either:

a) automatically update 'resolution' to 'fixed' or

b) (better IMO) prompt user on 'drop' to select a resolution (because it could also be 'duplicate' or 'won't fix').

If neither is currently possible, how would a developer close an issue as a dupe or won't fix? Directly from JIRA (ie don't use drag&drop from GH in that case?)

thank you,

Both of these are possible.

a) automatically set the resolution on transition with a post function: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow#ConfiguringWorkflow-Applyingpostfunctionstotransitions

b) prompt user to set resolution on transition: create a screen with "resolution" field on it, and add that screen to your transition: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow#ConfiguringWorkflow-Usingascreenwithatransition
