Resolutions and their usage

Power Admin for Jira allows you to find any resolution in your configuration and get a full report about its dependent workflows, agile boards, filters, and service projects. Additionally, you can also view all the issues with that resolution status.

Find resolutions

  1. On Power Admin's Home page, select Resolution from the drop-down, type a name or ID, and start your search.

  2. On the Search results page, click the name of a resolution. You can filter further the resolutions by using the Projects filter next to the search field.

  3. Then, the resolution’s profile page appears.

Search results

The page with search results shows the following information for each resolution:

  • Name and ID of the resolution - you can search for a resolution by its name or ID.

  • Projects - shows the number of projects where the resolution is part of their active workflows. When you click on the project count lozenge, you will see a list of all these projects.

  • Issues - shows the number of issues in that resolution status.

Profile page

Using the profile page, you can view all the details about a resolution and its usage.

How does Power Admin for Jira track a resolution’s usage?

Power Admin finds all projects where the resolution is present in their active workflows. The usage information also includes the issues that have this resolution status.

Power Admin collects all the workflows, agile boards, filters, and service projects that use the selected resolution by going through their JQL entries.

Usage information

A resolution's usage information is presented in the Summary and Details sections on its profile page.



The Summary section shows:

  • Projects: Number of projects that have the resolution present in their active workflows. You can click on the number to view a list of the projects.

  • Issues: Number of issues with that resolution status. When you click on the number, you will be redirected to the Issue Navigator listing the issues.

  • Dependent objects: Number of dependent workflows, agile boards, filters, and service projects.


The profile page's Details section shows the workflows, agile boards, filters, and service projects that depend on the resolution.


The following actions are available for resolutions:

  • Rename - click on the name of a resolution to rename it. Rename is a safe activity, which means that the resolution name will be updated in all dependent configuration elements referring to it by name. Renaming the resolution will update all JQL queries within filters and agile boards with the new name.

  • Edit - redirects you to the resolution's edit page in Jira.

  • Export - exports the resolution usage information into a CSV file.


The locations feature allows you to view detailed information about the resolution usage in agile boards, filters, and workflows.
