How to add additional days to an updated custom field on another custom field

Hi All,

I have a custom "Date Accepted" field and "Date completed" field on Jira cloud and will like the Date completed field to be updated with by adding few days e.g 2 days to any value entered in the Date accepted field 

Can anyone help with this?

You can use Automation. Have you attempted this? Here is a link to the docs around working with date fields to assist - smart-values-date-and-time-functions 

Thanks for the update but I did look into the option of automating this however it is not returning the value I need. I tried this but it does not return any value

{{issue.[Date Accepted].plusBusinessDays(10)}}

I want WO ETA value to be the value entered in Date Accepted +10 days


Hi @Seun Mustapha -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Please try to remove the square brackets around the smart value:

{{issue.Date Accepted.plusBusinessDays(10)}}

Best regards,
