When we transition to Closed, we want the Resolution field to be mandatory. However I don't see this field on the Precondition list of fields.

  Hi Mahari,

Please use the 

You can create a custom field in the work item called as 'Resolution' and make that mandatory whenever it goes to Closed state.
You can make an attribute mandatory by following these steps:
1. In RTC Eclipse client, go to Team Configuration -> Operations Behavior -> save work item
2. In Preconditions add Required attributes for Type and State. Select the work item and the state ( Closed) for which the 'Resolution' attribute has to be made mandatory.

So there is an OOTB field called Resolution, it just does not show up in the Precondition area, which was my question. I guess this is a defect. I will have someone create a defect.

Mahari, curious if you found a way to make resolution mandatory on Closed ?  One would think this is a basic requirement..  Just curious if you found a resolution or if you submitted a defect ?
