How to auto set duedate by priority when create a issue

I want to achieve this function, when create a bug, the duedate will be auto set.
If priority = S, duedate will be set to this day +3 days

If priority = A, duedate will be set to this day +5 days

If priority = B, duedate will be set to this day +8 days

If priority = C, duedate will be set to this day +10 days

How to do this?

Thanks very much!

You'll need a bit of code to do this.  I'd write a post-function (using the Script Runner) to set the date after the user posts the creation.

An alternative to programming is to use an Update issues post function for each of the cases and condition the post function by using %original_priority% equaling the value. For the due date field, use a specific value of %now% and add the + days in the Due date offset in days field. You may need to be careful with date format,  Substitution variables has more on that.
