How to set a restriction on changing the due date?

Maximum date change: 10 days from the current date.

The restriction should work on the editing and viewing screens.

Any ideas?

Hi @Ivan Ivanov ,

To my knowledge this is not possible out of the box. You could use an add-on for that, such as scriptrunner's behaviours.


@Antoine Berry  It’s probably not possible to configure the restriction. The field Due Date is missing when configuring through scriptrunner's behaviours.

@Ivan Ivanov you should be able to select the Due Date field in behaviours : 


You can then use this script snippet to restrict the due date : 

import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours

import java.sql.Timestamp

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours

def duedateField = getFieldById("duedate")
def duedate = duedateField.getValue()
def maxDate = new Timestamp(new Date().getTime() + 10 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);

if (duedate != "" && new Timestamp(duedate.getTime()).compareTo(maxDate) > 0){
duedateField.setError("The due date cannot be set further than 10 days.")
else {

Hope that works for you

@Antoine Berry  We do not have this field in the search. Probably, we have the old version of the plugin installed. I will try to do it after the update. Thank you very much!

Make sure you have not selected it previously in the configuration, because this field has been around for a long time.

No, we have not selected it previously in the configuration. And now the field is not in the list.

@Fazila Ashraf  This option will work on the transition. I need to set restrictions when editing a task.
