We have a similar use case that we solved in the following manner.


Using the Atlassian Automation Plugin we create a trigger that

  1. Has a JQL filter trigger and runs 4 times a day e.g. CRON schedule “1 2 2/7 * * ?”
  2. With a JQL expression filter all issues that are overdue e.g. project = "Project1" AND type = "Issuetype" AND status = Open AND duedate < now()
  3. Run an action “Transition Issue Action”
