Jira automation - change status for issues created before a specific date


I want to use automation on all issues that were created before the following date-  31/12/2021. 

If the issue status is open --> the automation will change the status to closed.

  • Trigger - I cant seem to find the correct trigger to start this automation. 
  • Condition - seems like there is no option to set issues created before a specific date
  • Action - I've been planning to use the "transition issue" (would love to get new ideas as well)

Hi @Dana_Harel ,

As you are trying to close all old tickets, I would suggest to make use of Bulk Edit and transition the required tickets to Closed status.
Please note: You should have permission to close on the listed tickets. 

You can use JQL "created <= 2021-12-31 and status = Open" to find out the tickets.

Agreed - if this is a one time action, you are better off doing a Bulk change. 

Thanks! it's working
