Automatically changing status if issue in status more than 7 days


Is it possible now (in 2017) in JIRA Cloud to create the condition for automatically changing the status of the issue?

On my workflow I have statuses:

"Need to approve" and "Done".

I want to configure the workflow in such a way that if a particular issue type is in "Need to approve" status more than 7 "working days" it is moved to the "Done" status automatically

Is this possible without writing a script?


I know that it was impossible in 2014.)

Thanks in advance!

This widget could not be displayed.

You should be able to do this with the free Automation Lite for JIRA addon.

It has a user friendly UI that allows you to graphically configure this based on a time schedule. You don't need scripting skills for this.

Walter, thanks for the answer!

I will try it.)
