Exclude Weekends in JQL Query

Hello Team,


I have a requirement to write a JQL Query in the Automation Rule for Jira Service Mgmt.

I need to find all the requests which are approaching due dates for less than 3 days from the expected completion date.

for e.g if the completion date is  04/22/2022  so today is 04/19/2022 then the jql should return all such request information which are in progress.


Quick response is highly appreciated.

Hi @iftekhar sayyed ,

unfortunately there's no a specific operator for this. you need to use startOfWeek()/endOfWeek() in your JQL in order to manually exclude specific weekend.

Hope this helps,
