This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Example: creating SLAs based on due dates
Is there a way to create a SLA countdown for the due date as allocated in the issue?
We use first response SLA, but for the time to resolution I would like this to be based off the assigned due date created in the issue, is this possible?
For example with some service requests we receive will advise a client that the work will be completed by date/time, have the Time to resolution SLA based off that date would help as it would reorder the events as required.
Maybe an option is to set up the SLA rules to "seem" as if it is counting down?
For example in a People Onboarding process we want to count down the days to an employee starting (date is a custom field)
Setting the goal to for example:
issuetype = Onboarding AND "Employment Start Date" <= startOfDay("+1d") with the Goal = 24
then adding more goals
issuetype = Onboarding AND "Employment Start Date" <= startOfDay("+2d") with goal 48h
The SLA Goal order is important. It will fire on the first rule that the issue matches, hence swapping out the goal as we close up on the Employment start date.
i would like to set a countdown timer to start when an issue goes on hold. What you are saying above sounds like this is very possible. I take it through a jql filter i can set the time to start at 3 weeks and countdown from there as long as i set the two goals like above?
We have similar issues in our company. Our customers make development or bug fix requests and we commit different dates for each request (issue) instead of fixed time duration. We put those dates as due dates of issues.
We are using Time to SLA app which enables to set custom date fields (eg. due date as in your example) as target date for an SLA.
For example, we have an SLA defined with target date as due date. When we input some date into due date as we open an issue then SLA counts down to that date.
You can check the link below.
Look for the SLA Negotiation Date Field in the document.
I hope that helps you solve your problem.
Hi Ravi, thanks for the response.
That link doesn't work for me but I have found the extension you are referring to.
