Hi @aynura_nasibova ,

yes, this should be possible. Something like:

When: Issue transitioned - To Done

Then: Edit Issue - Done Date set to {{now.jiraDate}}

Hi Aynura,

Yes this is possible. But realize that the resolved field is already capturing that date. Sometimes you can use resolved or resolveddate in your filters. See if you see that first, but you could also still set the date.

To set the date, create an Automation Rule for the Issue Transitioned trigger to Done.

Then add a New Action for Edit Issue.

Set the Done date field to now()

First, you can make sure that Resolution field is set when transitioning to 'Done' status. Normally, I use a default Jira post-function "Update Issue Field" to populate 'Resolution'. Since 'Resolution' got a value, you will see Resolved (Dates panel on Issue View).

If Resolved date field is not want you search for, you can use Automation rule for event 'Issue Transitioned' -> to 'Edit Issue': set "Done date" {{now}}
