How to make a field change automatically?


I want the field "start date" to change the minute the user change the issue status - so when user changes issue status to "in progress" the start date of the current day will update. 

is that possible?

Hi @Tal.Elbaz ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Please specify if your jira is on the cloud or local. Btw, you can put in place that behaviour just working at workflow level.

In particular, on your transition/s in "In Progress" status, you need to add a post function Update Issue Custom Field with Issue Custom Field "start date" and %%CURRENT_DATE%% or%%CURRENT_DATETIME%% (depending if start date is a date or datetime field) as value.

For more information about how to edit a workflow please read the following documentation

Hope this helps,
