running a daily check with automation for jira

Once a day, I would like to check some issues. In particular, I would like to see the "due date" field of each issue and if that date corresponds to today's date (of the current moment, today every day I mean), then the issue must be changed to "done". Is it possible to do this with automation for jira server (I'm using the lite edition)?

Hi @Calogero Kalos Bonasia 

My apologies if I am misunderstanding your use case, and...

Regarding your automation solution to move any issues due today to "done", does your team *ever* have work that is late, or incomplete by the due date?

If so, you may not want to just move things to done, but instead notify people that incomplete work is due that day.

Kind regards,

no the request is not for work, but to activate or deactivate accounts. An issue is a request for an account. The user approves the creation of the account. 90 days later the account must still expire. It is necessary to pass the issue to done to "give the list" of accounts that must be deactivated. Thank you for your comment, it is helpful in any case. @Bill Sheboy

Yes you can do this. Have you attempted to set up the rule as yet? If not try to do so. It will look something like this…

trigger - scheduled daily

condition - field condition- due date equals today

action - transition issue to done

@Jack Brickey thank you for your reply, I am trying to make the rule, the new problem is that I don't understand why still in 2021 there is this problem, the custom field on which I have to make the condition is not shown in the list.

First, I have not experienced that myself. However I use Cloud. I assume you have tried to start typing the name of the field to see if it appears? You might consider using JQL condition rather than Issue field condition. Finally you might reach out to support directly if all else fails.

Hi Calogero,

You have 11808 in your search but the field is 11807. Also, will the text of the field not show up? 

If still no, you might try some JSON in the advanced section for the field.

@John Funk 

thanks for your contribution, I'm afraid because with automation lite I just can't do it I see the function deactivated.

Use the Advanced Compare condition

@John Funk ok thanks, I confirm, I cannot use this function, on automation lite it is blocked. Patience, since on this jira there is script runner, I will try to understand how to do it with script runner. I didn't want to use script runner, because automation for jira is at least 156987 times better than script runner... but whatever. Thank you all.
