Due Date in Step is the Due Date that will be set to Jira issue when the Process starts. You can set due dates on tasks in your workflows to make sure that everything in your working process is completed due to schedule and nothing falls through the cracks.
Due Date has two options for tasks setting:
Dynamic date - automatically set the due time based on the number of days after the trigger is selected.
Exact date - a specific due date selected.
