I'd like to mask date fields, in order to restrict dates values and avoid inputs like 01/01/20016 (which would be accepted by JIRA but it would make the indexing fail).
Thanks in advance,
What kind of Custom Field are you using? If you use a Date Picker Custom Field it will already restrict the date input appropriately, using the Day/Month/Year Format as defined in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Customizing+the+Look+and+Feel
Jira will let me input 01/01/20016: https://casari-asoc.mangoapps.com/sf/Njc1NTRfMTU1MTc5OQ The format is defined as dd/MM/YYYY in the Admin/Look and Feel This caused me once a failed reindexing. I need to avoid this and also would like to restrict future dates, say duedates no later that 01/01/2018. Thanks.
That's odd, JIRA is supposed to validate input with JS in the client. I imagine you may be able to workaround that by populating the field with the Update Issue Post-Function, or another similar function. Was the data added through the edit field normally, or another way?
What are you look & feel settings for the Day/Month/Year format? https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA061/Customizing+the+Look+and+Feel If you have this set to something like dd/MMM/yyyyy it could cause the problem..
