Automatic escalation "Notification" based on SLA remaining time


we are using JIRA and JIRA service Desk plugin on top.

my question is about the capability of sending notifications / re-assigning issues based on SLA remaining time.

for example if customer fired an issue and the assignee didn't reply the ticket for two hours a notification should be sent to his manager with the issue and may be assigned to him

Hi Eslam,

You could take a look at the script runner and it's escalation service :

Or you could try doing it using a jelly service that runs every minute and simply sends an email containing all issue from a certain filter (which you'll base on the SLA) to a certain person.

Best regards,
