Date and time functions

Is it possible to use a variable or a custom field when formatting the date, e.g. 

{{now().plusHours({{"customfield_10286"}})

2 answers

Instead of a constant value in the plusHours () function I need to be able to use a variable from a field such as a numeric or a drop-down list, that's all.
If possible, please give me an example and syntax.
While browsing this thread, I have doubts if it is possible here

Hi @Kamil Blicharski and @John Funk 

I note you are trying to nest the smart values and wrap a number with quotation marks, which could be part of the issue.  Depending upon your custom field type, maybe try this:

{{now().plusHours(issue.customfield_10286.asNumber())}}

If that does not help, what problem are you trying to solve?  Knowing that may reveal alternative solutions.

Best regards,

Bill

Hi Kamil - please make your responses in the same thread here so that future readers can follow the conversation.

Did you try the syntax provided by Bill above?

Hi @Kamil Blicharski 

With automation rules, it is not yet possible to use a created variable as a parameter to a function.  If you just need to use a field from the issue, that does work.  Please see the example I provided.

Like # people like this

Would it be possible to use the syntax the other way around? So instead of using now to solve a math expression, I would would want to use a custom field as input.

 

Example: {{issue.customfield_100xx.minusBusinessDays(3)}}

 

In which my custom field would represent a delivery date (arrival at customer) and the output would be my due date (departure for transport).
