Can I populate due date based on transition date + number pulled from custom field?

Audrey Eikner May 8, 2024

So I've created a custom field for timebox using a numerical field. What I want is when someone moves a ticket from To > In Progress, it will trigger the due date to be filled out with current date + x (number from time box field, in business days). Is this possible?

Hi @Audrey Eikner

Yes, it is possible, and you will need to automate that with Jira Automation and smartvalue as listed below:

Thank you.

The simple answer is, yes.

You'll want to learn how to use Atlassian Automation for this.
