Place Data From One Custom Field to Another Custom Field after adding months to it


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey('xxxx-xxxx')

def months = 1
def dateACF = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_xxxx")
def dateAValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateACF) as Date
log.warn dateACF
log.warn dateAValue

def dateB = Calendar.getInstance()

dateB.add(Calendar.MONTH, +months)

log.warn dateB.getTime()

Hi @Justin Mele,

if I understood correctly, you want to add months to fetched value. if so you can try below snippet

def dateB = dateAValue as Date
dateB.setMonth(dateB.getMonth() + months) 

 hope this helps




      I did get that part of the script figured out. thank you! what I am trying to do now is place them in another custom field as an employee review. So it would go out 30, 60, 90, 180, and 12 months from their effective date.

Thank you,
