JQL Question - Date Picker Custom Field And Add 1 Day

Apologies for the confusing title of this post. What I am trying to achieve via JQL shouldn't be too difficult. 

I have a Date Picker custom field titled "Visit End Date." I am trying to figure out the JQL to pull the current date of whatever is entered into this field, but add one day.

I understand that "Visit End Date"=now() will give me Issues that reflect the current date, I'm just not sure how to write JQL that gives me the date of whatever was entered +1 day.

What I ultimately am trying to achieve is via the Automation for Jira plugin, have an automatic transition that happens 1 day after whatever date was entered in this field.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Try to configure an automation that runs daily and transition issues to the desired status.

To pull "yesterday" issues use this JQL filter:
"Visit End Date" >= startOfDay(-1) AND "Visit End Date" < startOfDay() 

It should be work.

Kind Regards.

Hey this works fantastically. I really appreciate the help!

Glad to help you ;)

Following up on my initial post, maybe this is closer to what I am looking for:


"Visit Certification Active" AND "Visit End Date" >= -1d


I'm not sure if this would make a transition happen 1 day after the date in the custom field. I am quickly beginning to confuse myself.
