Is there a way to update the date format for the Due Date field?

Under Issues in my project I want to use the date format as dd/mmm/yyyy

But the system only allows yyyy/mm/dd

Response to the question will be appreciated.

Thank you @Katarzyna Pawlak _Deviniti_ for the suggestion.

Could you please advise how do I revert my settings to  Old View.

Are you on cloud product or Server?

If you are on Jira cloud, click on the profile picture then select settings, scroll down under Jira Labs, disable the "New Jira Issue view". You should be good to go!

Hi @Abhijeet Goswami,

This is a system global parameter that the system administrator can modify as follows


Thank you for responding @Ollie Guan

I have already updated the date/time format to dd/mmm/yy but for some reason Due Date filed still shows the incorrect format.

Refer to the attached screen shots. Current setting of the date and time format.

Hi @Abhijeet Goswami,

It looks like a problem with New Jira Experience. I have the same situation. In "old" view I see correct date. In case of new view, when I see issue details in the drawer, date structure is different. Did you check how "due date" looks in old view? Probably, it's not a problem with your Jira settings.
