Good day!

I would suggest the following : 

  1. Trigger : Field Value changed for field 'due date' and for all operations
  2. Test if : the issue is subtask
  3. Then : go to its parent and
    1. Test if : the parent due date is before the subtask due date
    2. If yes : update the parent due date with the subtask due date

Thank you Mohammed!

Which of that I should to choose?

you can use JQL condition.

But after that I should to edit parent issue by JSON? There's no any parent's options.

the due date is the parents' one. If you want to get the subtask due date you have to use smart values {{triggerIssue.duedate}} : link

Your solution is greatful! it's work.

I've decided to change start values from parent + subtask to linked issues (task has "blocks" and bug has "is blocked by").

How can I compare task's dueDate and bug's dueDate? And change task's dueDate to the latest bug's dueDate?

For example:

tasks' due - 20/Nov/19

linked bug's due - 30/Nov/19

Task's due must change to 30/Nov/19.




Find this function:



Is it possible to use smth like that?
