Transition and comment when date = date of delivery

Task with date of delivery.

We want task transition to another status task and add a comment to task.

Condition: date of delivery (task) = today

Is this posible?

Hi José,

I'm from Code Barrel and we make Automation for JIRA.

So you can certainly achieve what you're trying to do with Automation for JIRA.

Your rule would have to look something like this:

  • Scheduled trigger: Set this up to run daily with JQL
    "date of delivery (task)" > startOfDay() and "date of delivery (task)" <= endOfDay()
    (this JQL may depend a bit on your field and requirements - you can test it in the issue navigator first)
  • Action: Transition the issue to status
  • Action: Add comment

Hope this helps!


Hi José,

In older versions of JIRA (6.3 or less) you could achieve this using Jelly scripts but unfortunately/luckily this feature does not exist anymore.

We do however use the Free Automation Lite for JIRA plugin which is built by Atlassian (and soon taken over by CodeBarrel). And this works well in many cases. You should take a look.

Hope this helps.

Hi Maarten,

Just to let you know: We (Code Barrel) are actually taking over the free Automation Lite for JIRA plugin.  We'll soon release an up date, that will switch it over to our new code base and UX.

The lite version will remain free as it is today.

For more details see our blog:

Hi Andreas,

That's certainly good to know. 

So we can scratch the "not supported" part from my answer :-)



Perfect Andreas.

Best regards
