compare a date custom fields validator using jira expression


I'm working on a project where I have a screen with custom date fields, I would like to use a validator using the jira expression to compare this field to the calendar date.
I tried with this code:
issue.customfield_10057.toCalendarDate() <= new CalendarDate().plusMonths(3).
but it doesn't work
can you help me with this.

Hi @Radia Bouraib ,

I believe you want something like this:

new Date(issue.customfield_10057) <= new Date().plusMonths(3)

You'll need to create a date object from your customfield with new Date() before you can compare it.

The documentation for Jira Expressions is pretty nice, but in my mind nothing beats trying things out yourself. We have a free app called Expression Tester to do just that, give it a try if you like.

Best regards,

Hi @Oliver Siebenmarck _Polymetis Apps_ 

Thank you very much for this expression, my requirement is different but this is helped to resolve my issues. I am comparing two Date & Time fields, Actual End should be less than or equal to Planned End date. I have used below expression and it worked.

new Date(issue.customfield_10009) <= new Date(issue.customfield_10145)

Hi @Radia Bouraib are you using Scriptrunner?

You can do that within the workflow of your issue type, without the use of an app like the following image:

If you want to use powerscipt to do that real-time, like a behavior short-of-thing, then I would suggest that you should refer to the documentation of powerscript. Unfortunately I haven't use this app.
