Copy system field "Due" to CustomField

Edited

Hi guys,

 

I see hundreds of examples of copying custom fields to other customfields, but how do i copy System field ("Due") to a custom field in all issues matching a JQL?

I am using a snippet found on the community that looks like this:

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.search.SearchProvider
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IssueIndexManager
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils


def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser.class)
def searchProvider = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchProvider.class)
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def indexManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueIndexManager)
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()


def query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery("project = ATP and due is not EMPTY") // change query to match the issues you want to update
def results = searchProvider.search(query, user, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter()) // get results of query
results.getIssues().each {documentIssue -> // go through each issue
    log.debug(documentIssue.key)
    def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(documentIssue.id)
    def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
    def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Start date");
//    System.out.println(customField)
    customField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField), documentIssue.key),new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()); // update values
}

List issues = results.getIssues();

for (Issue issue in issues) {
    boolean wasIndexing = ImportUtils.isIndexIssues();
    ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(true);
    indexManager.reIndex(issueManager.getIssue(issue.id));
    ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(wasIndexing);
}

 

 

But i am unable to specify the Due field using this example.. Could someone help me out?

issue.getDueDate returns a "time stamp" object which can go straight into the custom field's modified value.

Needless to say, As usual you kick ass. Got it working just fine! Thanks mate!!

I should mention that Due field seems to be a string with the text like "2012-01-24" which will go into a custom field that uses date encoding (which follows the exact same format, except for the string vs date type declaration).

Hey, can you share the final snippet here, I am unable to do the same. I need to copy due date values to custom field.

Hey @RJ  did you find a working solution. I'm also interested in it.
