How do I modify the ConfiForm date to the format needed by JIRA

I'm creating a form using ConfiForms to create a JIRA task. Here is the code that I currently have located in a IFTTT to create JIRA Issue. Then a No Format macro inside of that, which contains the following code:


  "fields": {
     "key": "TASK"
     "summary": "[entry.summary]",
     "description": "[entry.details]",
     "issuetype": { "name": "Task" },
     "assignee": { "name": "[entry.user]" },
     "customfield_20721": [{"id":"[entry.categories]"} ],

This code worked perfectly when the duedate was manually entered (coded date) with the expected format ("duedate":"2012-10-10" ). Unfortunately, the format that confiForms is passing through is MMM dd, yyyy; which causes a "Could not prepare JSON..." error. 


Q: How can I change the format from MMM dd, yyyy to the format that JIRA is expecting: yyyy-MM-dd?

In case someone else comes across this issue. The solution was: "duedate":"[entry.duedate.jiraDate]"

The first "duedate" is the JIRA field that the data will go to.

The duedate in the [entry.duedate...] is the name of my confiform field that the data is being pulled from. 

I probably should not have named my form field the same as the JIRA field.
