How do I write a JQL query to find issues that are 7 days away from the begin (date and time)?

We have a training project and want to send an email reminder to student 7 days prior to the start date of their class.

duedate > 7d

Will return all the issues wherein the "duedate" or whichever date field you want has a value greater than 7 days from the current day. I.e Event happening after 7 days.

This JQL can be sent as "Subscription" email to students

The field that I have to work with is Begin (Date and Time). I only want issues that have the Begin (Date and Time) exactly 7 days from today.  This query will check every day for issues that meet that criteria.

This is what I tried and it didn't work. I am very new at this :)


You can try JQL

"Begin (Date and Time)" = 7d and project = TR and status = "Scheduled"

This will dynamically add 7 days to the present day.

The query would be something like this

duedate = 7d 

Then you can create a filter from the JQL query and make a subscription for the filter. Subscriptions let you send filter results to certain groups of users on schedule. More about subscription you can read here:
