Hi @Clark Everson 

Looking at your rules, the actions are listed after the branch, not inside it.  Note the plus sign to add a component to the branch under its tree.  Try to re-add your components (the edits) and then delete the ones after the branch.

Best regards,


Hi @Bill Sheboy ,


So I got rid of the errors, but the dates aren't setting. Unsure why.




Thanks for the updated images.

Your rules say to only update the Start Date when it wasn't empty.  Same for Due Date.

Is that what you want to do: only replace the dates, not set them when empty?

yeah you're right i switched the JQL. Good old Friday

Also, when i set business days 10 does that include today? or no...if not and i wanted to do a sprint monday to following Friday I would need to change that to 9


in regards to the {{now}} is there a way to make the equal to the set sprint start date?



Look here for more info on the available smart value attributes:


If this ended up helping you, please mark this thread as answered so others can find it too.  Thanks!
