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!

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.)
