import com.atlassian.jira.util.I18nHelper

import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.I18nBean

import com.atlassian.jira.web.util.OutlookDate

def outlookDateManager = componentManager.outlookDateManager

def user = componentManager.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

I18nHelper i18nBean = new I18nBean(user)

OutlookDate outlookDate = outlookDateManager.getOutlookDate(i18nBean.getLocale())

def dueDate = issue.getDueDate()

def now = new Date()

if (dueDate) {

def dueDateText = outlookDate.formatDatePicker(dueDate)

if (now > dueDate) {

return "<div style='color:red;'><b>" + dueDateText + "</b></div>"

} else {

return "<div style='color:green;'>" + dueDateText + "</div>"


} else {

return null


No one cares to comment?

hi Warren,

Create a filter


status = Open and status was Open BEFORE startOfDay("-2d")


duedate < now()

What I'm looking for is the colour feature, Where the more overdue it is the darker the colour gets... Is this posible?

Nowadays I'd recommend using a JIRA Agile board and different card colors using JQL that finds overdue issues
