I tried to change issue resolution with automation for Jira following advices found in:
However, using the workflow provide by @Sheila Hippert I get an error message, saying that field Resolution may not be on transition screen.
Any idea why this does not work for me ?
Unknown fields set during transition. Field may not be on transition screen. Fields ignored -Resolution (resolution)
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
Thanks for linking the post. I checked her reply and created automation on my local site and it works.
First, I created a new column on my board called "Won't do" and added it before the last column:
Then, I created the automation:
After that, moving a card to the column, it adds the resolution.
Please, give it a try and let us know how it goes.
I was using issue fields condition instead of "if block", and for the then part, I was using "Transition issue to".
Anyway I still have some strange behaviour after trying what you suggested. And I don't get why ...

I tried this:
and this as well:
don't know if that makes a difference but none work.
Just a small notice. In your screenshot it is written "Resolution (system)", while in mine there is no "(system)" after resolution. Seems we are not operating the same version.
Thank you for the information and details, Kamal.
I believe that this "Won't do" belongs to another project and not the project you need. I also faced this issue when created the automation without specifying the project.
