Is it possible to calculate date automatically depends on what you choose in the field?

Hello, I have an question.


I made a custom field that users can choose one. (That field contains Text, Design, or Development.)

Is it possible to set date automatically in a create issue page? For example, if a user pick Text in the field, 2 days are added at today's date and calculated dates are shown.


Please help me with this problem.

Thank you!

Hi Seungeun,

You can do this using the Power Scripts add-on.

There is a video tutorial walking you through your exact request in detail along with the code here.

Hope you can make it work!

Natively, Jira can not calculate field values based on other field values.  But this kind of request is common enough that there are plugins for Jira that can do this.  One of these is the Jira Misc Custom Fields.  Perhaps you can create a calculated field with this plugin that could do what you are seeking here.
