Use Release date as due date in advanced roadmaps

When an issue is planned for a release/version; can the release date be considered as due date/target date in portfolio?

Or is there an easy method to sync the due date with release date?

Thanks in advance, and regards,

Hey @Hans Meijer ,

There is some light coupling between release date and issue end date - although admittedly not in the way that you're describing. If an issue is assigned to a release and its end date is set after the release date then the release will be shown as off track. Unfortunately the issue in question is not displayed differently and the end date is not applied.

We have actually done some experimentation with inferring issue dates from release dates (as is also possible with sprints) but are not yet committed to making that change at the present time - however, this does sound like it would do what you want, except that the dates would only be visible in the plan and not persisted to the issues (which I'm guessing you wouldn't want).

I think that the suggestion that @Fazila Ashraf is an interesting one and it might be possible with the automation features that also come with Jira Premium (if you're using our Cloud platform - you've not tagged this question with Cloud or Server so I can't tell!)



Thanks @Dave We are using the server version.

Indeed, i would only want it to be visible in the plan, and not persisted in the issue.

Can i subscribe to an issue to be notified, if such functionality becomes available?

Hi @Hans Meijer ,

Unfortunately there is no specific issue at the moment because we're not actually sure if we're going to take those prototypes any further or if they're going to become part of something else, therefore we've not raised an issue that could be tracked yet.

Any updates on this? I would like to see the visual timeline populated directly from release date. I am on cloud, using kanban. The release is the only place I have a date.

@Hans Meijer  , i was in the same situation and what i did was - using the scriptrunner's scriptlistener, i scripted that when ever a ticket in the project is edited, copy the 'custom date' field to 'target end date'.

Thanks @Fazila Ashraf 

Where does the "custom date" come from?

Thanks again, and regards,

@Hans Meijer  , in your case it is duedate but in my project, there was date custom field that the project team was already using to mark the end date. It was that i had copied over
