JIRA issue macro and recent dates

I'm having an issue with the way the JIRA issues macro renders the "Resolved" date. I noticed that for some dates (in the more recent past) it will show day of the week + time whereas for dates prior to that, it will show in MM/DD/YY + time format. Is there a way to force it to always show MM/DD/YY? I'm trying to build tables/charts using this field and the inconsistency is a problem.

I'm not sure why this is happening because in JIRA itself, when I look at this field, the format is always MM/DD/YY:

Hi @Anita Suri ,

We can suggest using our app that is Table Filter and Charts for Confluence to aggregate and visualize the Jira Issues macro.

Our macros "understand" the pretty recent Jira dates correctly and transform them into the standard format. Here is an example:

Tue 2-1.pngTue 2-2.pngAnd here are the examples of the Jira dashboards that you'll be able to create right in Confluence. The only difference for you as a Cloud user will be the Table Toolbox macro used to nest several macros. Other steps will be the same.

I was actually trying to use this info to build charts using your app. Nice to see you have a solution for this piece. Thanks for the screenshots!

If you get stuck somewhere, please submit a support request - attach your screenshots of the Jira Issues macro' output, describe the required chart or pivot and we'll guide you through the case.

Hi @Anita Suri

This is a known issue and atlassian won't fix it.  There is a workaround posted here:
