Automatically adjust priority/due dates based on time tracking estimates


I am currently investigating the possibility of having either JIRA or an add on to JIRA that can automatically adjust priority/due dates based on time tracking estimates of active issues. Essentially as issues are added and completed in JIRA all other remaining active issues can have their due dates and priorities updated based off of the other active issues due dates/priorities and time tracking estimates. There is another program that I haven't done to much research into called LiquidPlaner. But from the outset it seemed like that program was capable of doing those things. It would be great though if instead of having two different programs if I could find a solution inside of JIRA already.

Hi Matt,

This is exactly the sort of scenario that ScriptRunner for JIRA exists for. You can have exactly the logic and calculations you require when issues are created, updated or closed.

Disclaimer: I work on ScriptRunner, apologies for the shameless plug but I think ScriptRunner is awesome.

Regards, Jon
