Need to update date field value to current date+5 days excluding weekends during workflow postfunction in JIRA v5.2.4

Hi Vignesh,


You can write a groovy script and run it on post function.

put you logic in script

jira uses java.sql.TimeStamp class internally to display dates.

More on [Timestamp|]


import java.sql.Timestamp

def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("date_field")
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date() + 5).time))


just modify above fields to exclude weekends
