Need help with automation rule


I'm trying to create an automation rule that will set the end date to two weeks after the start date, but I'm not having any luck. (The rule shows as having been executed, but nothing shows up in the End Date field.) I think my problem might be not knowing how to refer to field names with two words. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you try the below syntax if the StartDate you are referring to points to Sprint Start Date


If the Start date field name is literally Start date, then try {{issue.Start date.plusDays(14)}} instead of {{issue.start_date...}}.

Hi Andy and Ajay,

Thanks for your suggestions. I tried both options and the both throw an error with AfJ. (It's a service project so there's no sprint.)



Actually, Ajay, you just alerted me to the problem. I was thinking Start date was a system field. I'll do it now with the custom field ID.
