How to set a date field to current date using behaviors?

Hello,

Since the "default current date" option in Jira defaults to the issue created date, I'm trying to use behaviors to set the field to current date.

I'm using the below date to achieve this. The script is setting the date as expected but editing is not working i.e the field doesn't let the user save a new date, even if a new date is selected, the current date is set back again.

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import java.lang.Object
import java.util.Date
import java.sql.Timestamp


IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(IssueManager.class);
FormField formField = getFieldById("customfield_10111");

def date = new Date()
String newDate = date.format("dd/MMM/yy")

formField.setFormValue(newDate)

Please advice.

Thanks.

You can try this something like

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat
import java.util.Date
import java.util.TimeZone


def cfHot = getFieldByName("HOT")
def cfHOTReason = getFieldByName("HOT Reason")
def cfHOTDateOn = getFieldByName("Became Hot On")

cfHOTDateOn.setReadOnly(true)

if (cfHot.value == null || cfHot.value == 'No' ){

cfHOTReason.setRequired(false)
cfHOTReason.clearError()
cfHOTDateOn.setFormValue(null)
cfHOTReason.setReadOnly(true)
cfHOTReason.setFormValue(null)


}

if (cfHot.value == 'Yes' ){


String DATE_FORMAT = "dd/MMM/yy h:mm a"
SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(DATE_FORMAT)
String CurrentDate = new java.sql.Timestamp(new Date().getTime()).format("dd/MMM/yy h:mm a")
Date date = formatter.parse(CurrentDate)
//log.error 'CurrentDate: ' + CurrentDate

SimpleDateFormat sdfAmerica = new SimpleDateFormat(DATE_FORMAT)
TimeZone tzInAmerica = TimeZone.getTimeZone("America/Los_Angeles")
sdfAmerica.setTimeZone(tzInAmerica)

String sDateInAmerica = sdfAmerica.format(date)
Date dateInAmerica = formatter.parse(sDateInAmerica)

//log.error 'INAMERICA000: ' + formatter.format(dateInAmerica)
cfHOTReason.setReadOnly(false)
cfHOTReason.setRequired(true)
cfHOTDateOn.setFormValue(formatter.format(dateInAmerica))

}
