Dear Community


I am a Progect Manager for big team in Ukrainian airline. We have a project in Jira Work Management with multiple tasks and subtasks. A lot subtasts are linked to each othe (blocket by) as one task need to be finished before another one will start. And each subtask has some duration (number of days to be implemented) which is reflected in my project as start and due dates.


What I need:


When start date and/or due date is changed by the assignee for one linked subtask, start and due date authomatically need to be changed for other later linked subtask, but duration of that task need to be the same.


For example:

Start date Due date

Subtask 1 Oct 15 Oct 20

Subtask 2 Oct 21 Oct 28



Start date Due date

Subtask 1 Oct 17 Oct 23 manually changed

Subtask 2 Oct 23 Oct 31 automatically cganged by the rule



How to create such a rule?


Thank you

Hi @Olena Romanenko , welcome to the Atlassian Community and thanks for your question!

I always recommend if you are new to automation to check out the Jira Automation Template Library - Jira automation template library | Atlassian. It has a lot of worked examples of rules to help get you started.

There is this rule for example, which is looking at a due date to update other due dates -

In this example, you would need to change the Related Issues Condition from Epic to Linked Issues and specify whether the issues to be updated are the blocking or blocked issues.


Then, you would need to change also the Branch to make the changes in the Linked Issues


and then finally, you can specify in the action what you want to about with the Due dates, either copying the values from somewhere else or using a smart value to derive what the new value should be, as you will see in the grey to set the new due date.


Please copy this rule into your instance and test it and then if you get stuck or need more help, please write us here.
