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.

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).

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