Working with Jira Dates

Good afternoon friends. I'm trying to work with dates inside Jira. I need to create an automation where tickets created on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) are assigned to specific people.

Basically my automation was like this;
Step 1 - When: Item createdCapturar.JPG
Step 2 - if: Item corresponding to JQL
"Request type" not in
(follows all my request types that don't fit the rule)
Step 3 - If: correspondence
contains regular expression {{now}}
Step 4 - Then: Assign the item to
Member of the user list

But tickets are dropping as unassigned. Is something wrong with what I'm doing?

Hi @Rodrigo Xavier 

I am unclear how your conditions would find issues created on weekends.  You could try this instead with an advanced compare condition:

  • first value: {{issue.created.format("E")}}
  • condition: exactly matches regular expression
  • regular expression: (Sat|Sun)

Best regards,

Perfect my friend. Thanks a lot for the help. I will build the rule based on what you showed me.
