I'd like to set up an automation for the following example:

If an issue type is created i want it automaticly to be set up with the priority "medium" (thats no problem and worked out well) 


Then i want there to be an automation that raises the priority to high after x weeks if nobody worked on it ( updated it) and automaticly raise to the highest after following x weeks. 

I tried it with a scheduled trigger: 

updated <= "-Xw" and priority = medium and status != DONE  + a cron to run daily. 

Didn't seem to work...

Hi @Peter ,

This should work (if X=3):

priority = medium and updated <= -3w and resolution is empty

So you might want to remove the quotes around -Xw.

Tip: If you use post-functions to set the resolution when an issue is done/rejected/duplicate then it is best-practice to use resolution in your JQL.
