Hi @rajeswari saravanan 

There's no native feature for this; you could try to use JQL to replicate this though - although it can get quite complex.

There's a suggestion for this here you could vote for/watch, but it is 13 years old - see:


Do you have Automation in your instance? 

You could create some additional metadata using Automation - eg.

  • Put the last updated date's day into a text field, then use that in the JQL to make the queries easier - eg.
    • If it's Monday, go back 6 days (weekend + 4 days)
    • If it's Friday, go back 4 days (4 business days)
  • Create a number field, and have Automation +1 to the field each day an issue remains open and not updated, exempting weekends and other non-working days. You could then just use that field in JQL instead


If you don't have Automation, I'd consider looking for an App from the Marketplace which can assist - either an automation/scripting app to replicate the above, or an app which can help you directly with the notifications based on business days.

Hi @rajeswari saravanan 

I agree with Stephan that Automation would be your best option here, i recommend using {{now.plusBusinessDays(1)}} or {{now.minusBusinessDays(1)}} that will not count the weekend and will follow your Jira setup in terms of business days.
