Update planned start date when a Sprint backlog date is changed


Right now I have an automation set to update the Planned Start and Planned End Date fields when the Sprint value is updated on an issue, it will copy it from the Sprint dates in the backlog.This is working as intended, however if we go to update the sprint dates in the backlog - it won't update the issues within the sprint. Is there a workaround for this?

Here's the automation:

Can you show us the details of the rule you have created?

@Trudy ClaspillI updated my post to add a screenshot of the Automation

Is the automation being triggered? Is so, is there any information in the audit log for the automation?

If the rule is set to update the issues only when the Sprint value in the issue is changed, then it should not be getting triggered by a change of the Dates in the Sprint itself.

The only triggers that I see available for automation based on the sprint itself are Sprint Created, Sprint Completed, Sprint Started. I don't think you can create an automation rule that will be triggered when the dates in the sprint are changed.

The workarounds to investigate that I can think of are:

1. A manually triggered rule (or scheduled rule) that would look at a sprint and then update the start and end dates of the issues in it if they don't already match the sprint dates.

2. For not started sprints, a rule to do the same thing but triggered by Sprint Started.

@Trudy Claspill  Thanks for your help.  It seems like this is something that might only be possible using ScriptRunner's scripted fields but we are currently trying to avoid that.  Thanks for your assistance though!
