I would like to create an automation that will extend a due date to allow for the amount of time an Issue was blocked. Is there a way to do this without having to use an add on?
Hi @Colin Hunt -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Yes, I expect so using the built-in Automation for Jira (A4J) rules. How do you:
With that information, there are a couple of solution approaches:
Approach (1) is simple, and approach (2) is more complicated and a bit brittle, while preserving the original due date and allowing reporting on "blocked time".
