Can't find "Target Start" and "Target End" in the automation section

I am trying to copy date from 2 existing fields to "Target Start" and "Target End" dates. But I can't  find these two fields in the drop down "Choose Fields to Set" in the "Edit Section" of the Automation. 

I also see a message at the bottom of the drop down that if you can't find all the fields, use the "Advanced" section.  Where can I find it?

Hi @Venky ,

You can update your field like below

using advance field editing.png

To find your field id, open advance issue search with JQL, type your field name

find custom field id.png

cf[xxx] is your field id -> it means Target start = customfield_10022, Target end = customfield_10023.

Remeber that you have to format your date value to yyyy-MM-dd, your smart value should be issue.your_source_date_field.jqlDate (your_source_date_field like due, created, customfield_xxx,...) 

Hope this helps!
