Due In Time on Jira Board

krizh.lal I'm New Here Dec 24, 2017

Hi Team, I have seen Jira Boards where it shows Days remaining to actual due date. I tried to configure it but i wasnt able to.

Ideally, if a task due date is today, on jira board it will say "Today" and colour code will be red.

Similarly, if a task is due for example 3 days from the day you login in, it will say "In 3 days".

Can someone please help how to configure that.

You can configure the colour of the cards. You would need to go to the board configuration menu and choose Card Colours and in the Colours based on field choose Queries. You could enter duedate > startOfDay() and duedate < endOfDay() and set the red colour for it.

As for the labels "Today" and "In 3 days" you could create a scripted custom field, for example, using Adaptivist Scriptrunner plugin with the required functionality and add the field to cards in the Card Layout menu.
