Update the Priority of an Issue in Jira

Overview

Automatically update the priority of issues in Jira. This can be used for bulk updating priorities, or as part of a larger script.

Example

When issues have been open for more than one week without them being transitioned into 'In Progress', I want the issue priority to increase one level above their current priority. For example, I want the 'Low' priority issues to change to 'Medium', 'Medium' priority issues to change to 'High'.

Requirements

Jira Jira (7.7 - 8.6)
