Want to move status based on the Date Time picker field Data

Hello team,


I want to move the ticket from one status to another if it reaches the Date and Time given in the "Change Date and Time" field while creating the ticket.

Hi @lokesh 

Welcome to the community.

Go to project settings -> automation and add new rule. Use Scheduled trigger and provide a JQL (Ex; due (or your customer date field) < now()). Then add an action (Transition Issue) and choose the destination step for automatic status change.

Hi @Tansu Akdeniz ,

Thank you for the quick response!

For the Scheduled trigger, when do I run the rule? will there be any specific time frame? Because tickets gets created every day or even every hour.


For example:

Ticket 1 - My Date picker field data is 08/14/2022 12:30 PM while creating the ticket.

Ticket 2 - My Date picker field data is 08/14/2022 1:00 PM

Let's say, my issues (Ticket 1 & Ticket 2) are at To Do status. When I reach the above time, these should move to In Progress.


Automation Rule:

Trigger - Scheduled

Action - Issue Transition to In Progress.


Do I need to run the rule for every 5 mins? 30 mins? 1 hour? or 1 Day?

Please suggest.

It is totally up to you. 

ps: Unfortunately, there is no trigger that will instantly detect when the deadline ends. Therefore, you should configure scheduler on time basis.

With the above JQL, I was not able to achieve even if I set the rule to run for every 10 mins.

My status is not getting changed. 


Thank You!

I assume that there are issues with due dates past. You can validate by clicking "Validate query":

Also please notice this feature "Only include issues that have changed since the last time this rule executed".

Can you check Audit Log of this rule?
