Unlink issues from their Resolving Objects

When you create a project or a task by converting an issue to the project or task, you have the option to keep the original issue. Your Adobe Workfront administrator must enable this preference for you to have this option during the conversion of the issue.
For more information about converting issues to projects and tasks, see Overview of converting issues in Adobe Workfront.

When you decide to keep the issue which was converted to the project or the task, the resolution of the issue is tied to the project or the task. The issue becomes the Resolvable Object of the project or the task. The project or task are the Resolving Objects of the issue.

You can also manually link an issue to another issue. The second issue becomes the Resolving Object for the first issue, in this case.
For more information about Resolving Objects, see Overview of Resolving and Resolvable Objects.

The issue status cannot be changed, as it changes automatically with the status of the Resolving Object.

You can unlink the resolution of an issue from that of a project, task, or issue by removing the project, task, or issue from the issue.
