Date Started wrong date format when Logging Work

Struggling to get date formats correct.

When using Log Work got an issue that after entering Time Spent I have an option to enter Date Started. This field I shows Date format 2/15/2021 5:21 PM while I have changed all options to German standard under Look and Feel and also under System -> Advanced settings. I have changed both Java and Javascript date and time pickers.

In all other places on Jira Service Management I see correct date and time, but when trying to Log Work I got this wrong standard.

Is this bug or am I missing some settings?

Hello @Ingus Mikuda,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Testing on my local site and also checking similar cases, I found out that the issue that you are facing is related to a known bug on the new issue view, where the date format is not respected:

They are already In Progress, so please, vote and watch to receive updates about the bug tickets.

Kind regards,

Hi .

Problem still remains... although modifying on advanced system settings and on look and feel date/time, it does not respects the modified format and shows the "american" format.


Thank you for reaching out to Community!

The bugs are still in progress, that’s why when modifying the settings and look and feel, the dates are not showing in the desired format. 

Please, watch both bugs so that you are notified when our developers fix the issue.

Kind regards,
