What are Issue Attributes?

Issue Attributes are the measures to find the position of work in a workflow, importance, or Priority of an issue in the workflow, and how the issue has been resolved.

Issue Attributes includes:

  1. Status
  2. Resolution
  3. Priorities 

Status: 

Status indicated the progress of a project, task, or issue. When an issue is created, its default status is also created. These statuses can be edit or deleted anytime as per the team’s needs.

Jira Statuses

The list of various statuses is given below:

  • To do: This indicates that the issue has been created and waiting for the team to work upon.
  • In Progress: This indicates that the assignee has started working on the task, project, or issue.
  • Open: It indicates that the issue is in the open state, and the assignee can start working on it.
  • Closed: The work has been finished, and the resolution is correct. Please note that the closed task can be reopened at any time if further issues can be observed at work.
  • Reopened: The work has been closed, but due to some incorrect resolution, it has been reopened.
  • Resolved: The reopened issue has been fixed and is waiting to be reviewed. If the review is successful, then it will be closed; otherwise, it will be reopened again.
  • Done: It indicates that the work has been finished.
  • Under Review: This means that the work has been done by the assignee but is waiting to be reviewed by the reviewer.
  • In Review: This means that the reviewer has started reviewing the issue.
