Insight automation - Update Date Value in Insight after Object Update in Jira


i have problems creating an automation in insight.

When a Jira Issue is updated, the actual date should be inserted into a date field. When I change the "Then" field to a status or text change, the automation works.

What I am trying to do is, that the the actual date should be written into a date- or textfield.







Is it possible to this with a simple automation? I'm not familar in scripting.

Many thanks for helping me out.

Hi @Andre ,

Insight/IQL does not support now() as attribute value as far as i know. I've tried to implement a similar solution and used 'updated' as next best thing.



Thanks for helping me out. "Updated" works for me as well. Thanks again.

In documentation says for support "Placeholders


I try to use ${update} from Advanced: Placeholders,

but date not set to attribut

Try using ${Updated}

It worked, thanks!

Like Andre likes this

now() is not supported , but is an actual date supported?
