The workflow for the Issue Type is the default workflow in Jira. I have admin rights for the Project under which the Issue was created. I was unable to find any information in the Jira Help database for "resolving" and issue after the issue is closed. I assume that the two "resolve" & "close" are distinct technical terms in [the] Jira workflow/functionality. How is an issue "Resolved".
Tyler, The workflow cannot be modified without going through an admin. Furthermore, the lack of a "Resolution" "Screen" or workflow element does not seem like a reason that an issue cannot be resolved. On the Open Issues page there is a "Status:" and a "Resolution:" field. I have added the required notes to close an issue and it is still being reported as "Unresolved". Is there a different default set of options that should be present for a role that has the privilege to resolve and issue?
An issue is transitioned by using one of the transition buttons at the top of the screen. They are the grey buttons that normally denote a different status in the workflow.
There is a path to resolving an issue during an issue transition, you can achieve this by adding a post function on the transition path that adds a resolution to the issue when it is moved into (or out of) a specific state.
