ūüöĬ†JWT 3.0 is out¬†ūüöĬ†

The app was completely overhauled, and so was the documentation: Jira Workflow Toolbox (Server/Data Center) Home

The page you are viewing is still valid for all app versions prior to 3.0.

Features used to implement the example



Example: Set "Due date" 6 natural days (or work days) earlier than a "Date Picker" custom field

I tried to use the substractDays. function and it does not work. The due date stays empty. I tries 6 * {DAY}, I am not sure if it is the good way. Actually, on the creation, I want to push the value "Ship date - 6 days" to "Due date".

In case you want to subtract 6 natural days from "Due Date", you have to use post-function Mathematical and date-time expression calculator with the following configuration:

 

Notice that:

  • {12200}¬†is the code for numeric value of field "Ship Date". This code depends on each Jira instance.

Once configured, transition "Create Issue" will look like this:

 

Alternative implementation

In case you want to subtract 6 work days from "Due Date", you have to use post-function Mathematical and date-time expression calculator with the following configuration:


Note that:

  • {12200}¬†is the code for numeric value of field "Ship Date". This code depends on each Jira instance.
  • Work days depend on timezone, since certain moment in time may be Sunday in some timezones, and Monday in other ones. In the example we are using¬†Jira server's local time, but we can use any other timezone. If you want to use the¬†current user's time zone¬†you should use¬†USER_LOCAL¬†instead.

Once configured, transition "Create Issue" will look like this:



Since version 2.2.39, Jira Workflow Toolbox supports Custom Schedules, and you can do all you are doing now using addTimeSkippingWeekends() and subtractDatesSkippingWeekends() functions, and much more.
