Behaviour : How do I Set due date to after 7 days when summary change and on create


When Summary change trying to set Due date after 7 days on creation. SetformValue is not setting the value to due date. What I am doing wrong

def sumField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
log.debug("summaryField value" + sumField)
def dueDate = getFieldByName("Due Date")

Date dateNow = new Date(new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy").format(new Date()+7))

log.debug("Date Now" + dateNow)



Any advise.

Hi Om,

I think you are trying to set the due date after 7 days of creation but in the script, you are using the .setFormValue() method on the summary field.




Thanks and regards,
