How to use the releaseDate function for a specific day of week Edited

Hello, I'd like to use the JQL function releaseDate to target a specific day in the week, for example Tuesday of the current week without having to specify a specific day.  This is used to dynamically populate a dashboard that shows all the issues scheduled for release on each day of the current week.

Basically, I want to write the equivalent of:

fixVersion in releaseDate("after startOfWeek('+1d') before startOfWeek('+2d')")

You can do this, but from my testing, you need to count backwards.

For instance, if I want all issues that have a fix version release date on Thursday, I'd write:

fixVersion in releaseDate("on endOfWeek(-2d)")

If I want all issues that are going to be released on Tuesday:

fixVersion in releaseDate("on endOfWeek(-4d)")

That works great.  It seems like the issue was the single quotes I was adding around the parameter to startOfWeek() that was causing the error.

Hi @Joshua Yamdogo [Adaptavist]

Following up on this script from the previous thread:

enableCache = {-> false}
def version = issue.getFixVersions()


I would like the Release Date field to update as a multi-line text field that accounts for the possibility of multiple Fix Versions.


If there was one Fix Version, Milestone 12, it would say:

Release Date: 11/27/17 (Milestone 12)


If there were multiple Fix Versions, Milestone 12-14, it would order all of them by release date:

Release Date: 11/27/17 (Milestone 12)

                       12/4/17 (Milestone 13)

                       12/11/17 (Milestone 14)


Could you help me regarding how to check for an increasing number of Fix Versions and then order based on their respective release dates?

Hi Jordan,

You would probably need to loop through the issue's fix versions (in the script above: 'version') and then collect all of the dates from each one. Then, you'd have to sort them based on date. Finally, you'd have to output the results of the collection in the format you want. 

Would you mind posting your question as a new community question? That'd help keep things organized.
