Mass update 'state' field through Command?

Hi

I need to update 158 entries in our YouTrack instance which currently have a state of 'Triage', these need changed to 'Confirmed'. I have queried out all records I require via search (State: Triage) and then selected all records via check box. Within the command window I type 'State Confirmed' which works find for 1 record at a time.

When applying this to all records Command Preview reads 'unknown command'. Applying it yields no change with a system error 'Can't submit incorrect command.'.

Going through them one by one is something I am keen to avoid if possible. Can you please advise if I have ran the wrong command or if there is perhaps a problem with the system?

Thanks
Anthony

Hello Vikaschandel,

I see that you have created a separate How to change status of multiple issues at the same time? thread for this task. So, lets continue discussing in that thread.

Hello Anthony,

please unsure

- you updated issues from single project

or

- if issues are from many projects 'State' fields is attached with the same (shared) bundle.

- you have rights to update 'State' field

- you still can see all that issues (anyone synchronously didn't change any issue visibility group)

Hi

Wonderful thanks. We have 2 projects and I was applying the command to 'All Projects', of which they did not both share the same 'State' fields - slight naming difference I was unaware off.

The fix as above is to apply the command to each project seperatly or at least share the bundle across all projects.

Thanks

Anthony
