Try changing the following entries in BambooActionSupport.properties:

global.dateFormat.date = dd MMM yyyy
global.dateFormat.datetime = dd MMM yyyy, h:mm:ss a
global.dateFormat.time = h:mm:ss a
global.dateFormat.ago = ago

# Webwork default values
webwork.date.format=dd MMM yyyy, h:mm:ss a

sounds promising but...

where do i find the BambooActionsupport.properties?

I'm using Bamboo 3.4.3 on Java 32 bit 1.6.25

Look for atlassian-bamboo-language-3.4.3.jar in your Bamboo installation directory

Thanks a lot, it worked
only needed some time to figure out, how to modify a jar file (i'm new to this stuff)

Is hacking inside a jar file realy such a good idear?
You would have to do this again after any update...

IMHO its a terrible idea
but there is no other way
and yes, you have to change it after every update

Is there today any other way to do this?

no

We've got this issue as well and I can't say modifying a jar file to set date format sounds like a good idea...

I'd prefer a cleaner way than above solution. Is it really that hard to allow users to change such a setting?

The other Atlassian products allow to do that in the UI; having a configuration file outside the JAR overriding the default shouldn't be too difficult IMO:

I’m aghast. Well-known issue, quite easy to fix. If at least Atlassian had settled for a more universal, scientific format.

Hi,

Do you know Atlassian add this setting to GUI without editing jar files?
