Is it possible to update the release date of the Fix Version with Automation for Jira?


I am trying to maintain the release date of the fix version of an issue based on a custom date field in the underlying issues. The logic would be that if the custom date is changed to a date later that the release date of the fix version, the release date would be updated with the new date.

I cannot figure out from anywhere in the documentation if the release date of the fix version is an editable field. All examples refer to fields of issues, while the release date is  field of the version, not the issue.

I tried "Additional fields" section of the Edit issue action and set it up as below, but I am getting a "Not valid JSON" error.

   "fields": {
      "fixVersions" : [ {
         "name" : {{}} ,
         "releaseDate" : {{issue.customfield_14201}}
      } }

Any thoughts?

Hey Tibi,

Unfortunately, this isn't possible right now. 

We don't have the ability to edit a version yet. We will need to create an action for this. We are tracking the improvement here: 

Once we do ship this, we will pop a notification here to let you know.

I also need that functionality
I lose the original release date, when I do a release of the version that overwrites said date
then i cancel the release but i lost the original release date
