Set default value for custom field (date) 2 weeks from today()

Dima Astahov May 13, 2024

Hi,

It's April 2024 and I see that everything is very time sensitive in Jira so post fresh question.  Also  tried few solutions from prev posts none of them worked for me.

 

How  I can default my custom field (date type, date picker) 2 weeks from another  Field with ID =1234 (custom  or built in) . Is this possible?  As an option it also could be from today().

For now I think it works only for text field.

 

Thanks much

Dima

Hello @Dima Astahov 

You can use an Automation rule to update the field automatically after the creation of the issue is completed.

If you want to update the field to set a default value within the Create Issue dialog, where the value may be dynamic/relative to another field or the current date, that would require use of a third party app such as Adaptavist's Behaviours app.

Automation Rules are native.

However there are limitations on how many rule executions you can have per month based on your subscription plan. Refer to

Thanks Trudy, I did a rule, could not yet the way to manipulate (add 2 weeks) to my source field. But I will  try to learn it.

You'll need to look at smart values and functions for manipulating date and time data.
