Sub-task displays Due Date based on the linked issues it depends on.

Trying to have a Sub-task display a Due Date based on the linked issues it depends on.

Hierarchy:

Epic

-- Sub-Task

- - depends on - linked issue from other projects

Example:

Sub-Task "A"- depends on the following issues from different Projects:

  • Linked Issue 1 - Due date of 10/5/2015
  • Linked Issue 2 - Due date of 07/15/2016
  • Linked Issue 3 - Due date of 11/02/2014

The date I want to dispay in Sub-task "A" is from Linked Issue 2 since it is the furthest out.

To further complicate things, I want it to only show that date if it is past the Due Date set in the Sub-task "A".

Thanks for helping.

You can do that with the Script Runner plugin, create a listener and update the due-date if needed. But that might be quite an effort as you have to check all issue links.
