JIRA cascade due dates

Is there any way to change all the issue due dates at once? I am the lead on a project where we have had to revise the scheduled due dates several times because 1 date will get postponed, causing all subsequent dates to need to be moved the same amount. If there was a way to add 2 days (for example) to every due date based on certain criteria (dates cannot be moved to Saturday or Sunday, for example), that would be very helpful.

Hello Matthew,

As far as I know, this is not currently possible within JIRA. You need to add the dates for each issue individually, unless they are all due in the same date, then you can perform a bulk change in order to change the due date for those issues.

However, let's see if there are any other opinions or work-arounds regarding this. :)

Has a work around been found. I have the same problem and it causes me to spend more time managing Jira than really managing my projects.

Thank you for your answer Ala!
