Automation based on Created date

John McConnell April 2, 2024

Hello All;

I hope this post finds you well.

Our project is leaning toward heavy JIRA automation for issues. One use case is, as a product manager, I want to automatically add a value if it is not present so that it can be automatically added based on the date the issue is created.

I created a rule with Advanced compare condition of {{issue.created.format("yyyy/MM/dd")}} > "2024/04/08" (hard coded at this time)

This rule runs regardless of the past/present/future date.  Why?

I have read through many KAs but have not found exactly what I was looking for. What am I missing?

I look forward to the community insights.

Hi John, if you remove ".format("") and use "shortDate" or "jiraDate" does it work?

Those should be other options based on this smart values for dates doc from Atlassian.

You'll need to change the date around.

Thank you, I did find a simple JQL about 5 mins after I posted.

I will try this, thanks!
