Automation move Issue to different board when Due Date of one of the subtasks is 2 months away

Josiah Ekong August 15, 2023

Hello everyone,

I want to be able to build an automation that moves an issue from a board called "first test shipped" to a board called "second test upcoming" when one of its subtasks due dates is 2 months away.


Context: All issues have 3 subtasks that all have due dates. I want to be able to move the issue to a different board 2 months before the first subtask due date. Then move it to a different board 2 days after the first subtask due date passes. And I'd like to do this for all 3 subtasks.


Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Issues do not move between boards - boards are not containers of issues, they are a view of a selection of issues.

If you want to remove an issue from a board, then you need to change it such that it no longer matches the board's selection criteria.  Similarly for getting a board to show a card - change the issue so that it matches the selection criteria.

You mention dates in your question, that would mean you probably want to set up boards that select for issues based on dates (e.g. "and due date > -2m" for one board and "and due date <-2m" for the other).  But this could be quite hard to set up, so I would recommend an automation that updates a field that the boards can select for.  For example, a simple "Board" field that contains 1, 2 or 3, and the automation sets the board to 1, 2, or 3, based on the dates.
