Set due date after adding comment

Is there a way to set the due date automatically to one day after the actual date if someone adds a comment to an issue?

It would be great if someone has an idea smile. Thanks!

With a bit of dev work. You will have to write a listener to do that.

I believe you can use the Automation plugin to fire the update in the field when a new comment is added.


I tried it with the Automator plugin:



Select Trigger: Issues Event trigger

Issue Event: Issue commented

JQL expression: project = IFS AND issuetype = Problemmeldung AND status in (Open, "In Progress", Reopened) AND due <= 5m AND assignee in (currentUser())

Choose action: Edit issues action

Edit fields: duedate = duedate +1


The problem:

The rule will not be executed, the log says that I´am not allowed to assign an issue (Sie sind nicht berechtigt, Vorgänge zuzuweisen) ... I only have the german translation of this log entry, but I hope you know what I mean.

It is strange, because I have no action which tells to assign a user?

We also have an other rule which works fine, but changing the duedate does not work.

Can anybody help?


I've the same error on try to set a summary.

log message:
