We have a form for new starters that comes into on prem jira.
In the summary of the ticket the start date is populated by the form.
Is there a way using automation to take that date and populate the Due Date field please?
Many thanks in advance,
Do you have automation for Jira installed in your instance? If so, you should be able to parse out the date from the summary and use it to see the Due Date.
If not, there is a free (lite) and paid (pro) version of the automation rules, and you could discuss with your site admin about adding the feature.
Mark, I can try to do both!
If you provide examples of your summary, the community can give you ideas how to parse that with a rule.
Next, here are links to the server documentation for automation rules, the template library of rules, and a large list of automation references:
Bill, thanks again for the response!
Unfortunately not been able to find what I need from the documentation you kindly gave me so here's the example of what I'd like to do.
The Summary of the ticket will always be in the same format as it's created by a mail sent via Power Automate. The summary looks like this:
New Hire Form for *user's name* - *universal date format*
New Hire Form for Joe Bloggs - 2021-10-15
What I'd then like to do is use automation for jira to look at each newly created ticket, take that universal date and populate the Due Date field with it.
Would love to know how please.
Mark, you should be able to extract that date using the right() function:
For example with your summary layout:
The rest of the rule would be something like:
first thank you for the great work!
I have a similar problem, which can also be solved with the solution described. Unfortunately our date is in a different format. I have read that you can change the date format, but everything I tried so far failed. What should the query look like if the format from the date in the summary is not 2022-01-21 but 21.01.2022?
My suggestion would be to use text functions to parse/convert the string into the standard Jira date format of yyyy-mm-dd and then use toDate on the result.
If you are using Jira Cloud with your automation rule, Create Variable would help for a working space location. For example, if we assume your date of dd.mm.yyyy format is in the summary, put this in a created variable, such as named varMyDate:
Then use the date with:
