Automation for Weekend

Hello, we have a JQL statement for our weekend oncall tickets however some appear to not hit the criteria necessary. Wondering if this statement is correct for reaching all tickets on Saturday & Sunday.

{{#=}}({{now.convertToTimeZone("America/New_York").dayOfWeek}} > 5) && ({{now.convertToTimeZone("America/New_York").dayOfWeek}} < 7){{/}}

Kind Regards

Hello @Kadeem Samuel 
Did you try with a <=5.?

It may sound nothing, but with the information your question has, I think some of the tickets may jump out with the time conversion in the query.
Let me know if there is any change.

Thank you for replying Sudarshan, I will give that change a shot over the weekend to see how it responds.

Hi @Kadeem Samuel ,

Can you share more about what are you trying to achieve? Maybe a share your Automation Trigger and conditions would help to understand your issue and propose a solution.

Hello Italo,

Thank you for the reply; the following is the automation we are trying to correct. Basically, want any support request that comes in all day Saturday and Sunday to get tagged as on-call. We have a second automation that handles the weekday time frame
2020-12-21 16_48_57-Automation rules - JIRA.jpg

Can you try this condition instead? This will check if the current day is either Saturday or Sunday in the NYC timezone. 

First value: {{now.convertToTimeZone("America/New_York").dayOfWeekName}}

Condition: contains regular expression

Regular expression: (Saturday|Sunday)


I encourage you to also use a log action(see in my image the component under the condition), you can use this to check the {{now.convertToTimeZone("America/New_York").dayOfWeekName}} value in the audit log in execution and it can help you to check the value of your smart value.

Hope this helps!
