Problem solved. 

i used this script : 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12345") // Date time fields require a Timestamp
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date()).time))

thanks for this document: https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/recipes/workflow/postfunctions/set-issue-attributes.html

Without knowing what you've tried, it's quite likely someone will give you the code you've already used.

Could you tell us what you've tried?

hi, i had some weird behavior (could not create new Timestamp) but seems like today it is working better... not sure what i did wrong. 

Thanks
