Custom field which will capture Date and Time stamp when given condition satisfies



I need to create one custom field in JIRA which will capture Date and Time when value of other three fields set to '1'.


So whenever drop down of "Prioritization Business Impact", "Prioritization Severity" and "Prioritization Work Around" set to "1", new field should capture date & time of that moment.

How can I do this?


Thank You.

Hi @cnavagr ,

You can create a file in ScriptRunner Script Editor with the below script:

def cf1 = getFieldByName("CUSTOM_FIELD_NAME1").getValue()
def cf2 = getFieldByName("CUSTOM_FIELD_NAME2").getValue()
def cf3 = getFieldByName("CUSTOM_FIELD_NAME3").getValue()
def date = getFieldByName("DATE_TIME_CUSTOM_FIELD")

def currentDate = new Date()

if(cf1 == "1" && cf2 == "1" && cf3 == "1"){
date.setFormValue(currentDate.format("dd/MMM/yy h:mm a"))


Then, create a ScriptRunner Behaviour and add this created Script Editor file to your three Single Select List fields. Please remember to map the Behaviour to the correct projects and issue types.


Thanks for quick reply.

I could create Behaviour & mapped that to correct project and issue type.
But not understood part which says, add this created Script Editor file to your three Single Select List fields.

I will have to create one new custom field and then that field needs to add in this behaviour?

Thank You,

Hi Rakesh, 

What I mean is to apply the script to that three drop-down fields ("Prioritization Business Impact", "Prioritization Severity" and "Prioritization Work Around").

For example, create a file in the Script Editor named test.groovy. 

Then, edit your Behaviour > Add Fields (search for Prioritization Severity) > Add server-side script > Select the "File" tab > enter "test.groovy".

Repeat the steps for another two drop-down. 

That worked!

Thank you so much for quick response and clarification.
