How to create a post function ScriptRunner script for advancing a custom Date Picker field by X days.

We have a workflow that has a transition for auto-advancing a custom Date Picker field by 21 days and need some guidance in creating the Post Function ScriptRunner script for advancing the date.

Many thanks for your willingness to assist.

The example here explains how to update multiple custom field types: https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/recipes/workflow/postfunctions/set-issue-attributes.html

Line 28/29 shows how to advance a date field by 7 days...

So removing what you don't need, you should end up with something like:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

// a date time field - add 7 days to current datetime
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("First Date") // Date time fields require a Timestamp
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date() + 7).time))

Sir Jamie,

Good to hear from you.

Many thanks for your concrete tips!

the above script is working fine for me . But the challenge for me is to exclude the weekens now .

Can anyone help me in this please .

my script :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_18761")
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date() + 7).time))
return dateCf

Hello, @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist]

Can you please explain instead of Timestamp, what would be needed if the date picker is only a date picker and not a date time picker?

Thank you in advance for your help. 

It's the same thing, it will just ignore/truncate the time portion.
