I have a rule that clones an issue. One of the fields being copied is called ‘Frequency’ and holds values of Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Annually, Annually. When the new issue is created, I need to ‘apply’ this Frequency value to the due date of the original issue do determine how far out to make the Due Date of the new issue.
So, if the original issue had a Frequency of ‘Quarterly’ and a Due Date of July 1, 2017, the cloned issue would have a Due Date of October 1, 2017. Any help you can offer as to how to accomplish this in the rule for the frequencies listed would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
So we don't support this very well yet (what you really want is some way to create a mapping of values - https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-173).
For now you'd have to create another rule like this:
See https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AUTO4J/pages/24903696/Working+with+Dates for more details on available date functions.
So the idea is that you have another rule that listens for when the issue gets cloned (ensure this rule can be triggered by another rule in 'Rule details') and then for each of the different values of the 'Frequency' field it edits the issue with the appropriate future due date.
Hope this helps. Like I said it's a bit cumbersome, but we don't have a better solution at the moment.
Andreas, I have your suggestion basically working but have one question. In the second step of your new rule you say to add a JQL Condition to match the newly cloned issue. I can not find how to do this. Can you help? Thank you, Bill
