Customize Issue Statuses

Status is an issue field that represents the issue's current stage in its lifecycle. There are three predefined statuses:

  • Open: the work on the issue hasn't started.

  • In progress: the assignee is working on resolving the issue.

  • Done: the issue has been resolved.

Statuses can be of two types: Resolved or Unresolved. The default statuses Open and In progress fall in the Unresolved category, and the status Done is considered Resolved. These categories are used in quick filters to help participants find relevant issues.

You can create additional custom statuses or edit the existing ones.
