Automatically changing satuses on workflow


I'm working on JIRA Workflows and I'd like to know if there is any way I can set any date as validation on my workflow. I'd like the issue to move from one status to the next automatically in one week. Is it possible?

Thank you!

I understand that you want to be able to automatically transition an issue in Jira after a set time.  In this case, changes to validators won't be helpful here.  Those only control when a transition can be run.  

If you're using Jira Cloud, you should be aware that Atlassian recently rolled out project automation to all Jira Cloud sites. At the time you asked this question, it may not have been available yet on your site. This feature will let you setup automation rules that can do exactly what I think you are looking for here.  More details on this can be found in  In your case, you could setup a trigger of type Scheduled.  This will let you automatically transition issues that match a specific JQL query at a set interval.

If you happen to be using Jira Server, then I would still recommend checking out some of the Marketplace options for automation.

I hope this helps.
