How do I set an automation e-mail when the epic end-dat equals "now"?

Dear peers, 

once we can adress nearly every field of an epic for an automation rule, if haven't figured out a solution for compare dates. 

I would like to set the automation-rule:

When the epic "end-date" equals "now" ~ today~ send an e-mail to with the subject of "bla bla". 

I know how to set the e-mail component, but I don't know the correct codes fpr the rule. 

Thanks so much for your support!

Hey @Marion Lotter 

Are you referring to automation for Jira rule ?

If that is the case you can use in your "Condition" of automation rule something like this.

Trigger: Field value changes --> Add "end-date"

Condition: in JQL condition--> "end-date" = starOfDay()

Action: Send Email

Hope this helps !!

Let me know in case if more details are required happy yo help :)



Hey @vishwas 

ya, I refer to jira automation rules. 

I wonder: all the triggers belong to "issues" but we need triggers for epics. 

And the field itself doesn't change.

the set up of Condition and the following action is understood. 

But which "Trigger" do I choose. to catch the epics? When nothing really changed besides the fact, that the condition end-date equals "now" occured?

Hey @Marion Lotter 

Got your point.

I wonder: all the triggers belong to "issues" but we need triggers for epics. --> Epics are also issues only so the same triggers work for epics too.

We can use schedule trigger like this, which will be made to run everyday to capture the end-date is today.


Let me if there are any question on this, happy to help :)
