Date Expression Compare Precondition

JSU for Jira Cloud

This is the documentation of JSU for Jira Cloud. If you are using JSU on Jira Server/Data Center, you can find the documentation here.


The 'Date Expression Compare' check compares the value of a date field with a date expression. For example, the date field must be more recent than actual date.


You must select the date field, the comparison condition, the date expression itself, and optional whether to include the time part for comparison. For example:


A workflow is configured so that the 'Resolve' transition has the 'Date Expression Compare' check where 'Due Date' > '1w 1d'. If the transition is executed, and the due date is more than a week and five days away, the time left at resolution will be set to "> 1w".

Supported Field Types

In its different modules (especially those for workflows), the JSU app supports many different field types. System fields, as well as custom fields.

However you should be aware, that not all field types or all combinations are supported. We think we cover the most important field types and are still continuously adding and improving which, and how different field types are supported. But the one you need might not work (yet). 

We recommend that you test JSU with fields to see if it is compatible with your system. Our evaluation license gives you 30 days free trial.
