Adjusting // date format to show EEE dd/MMM/YY in Jira Cloud Edited

Hi all,

Wondering if I can get some help with Jira Cloud.

Currently in a ticket when I do /Date or // I get my date picker as usual and when selecting a date am shown May 31, 2021.

I want this field to display Mon 31/May/2021 when I select the date.

I have undertaken the following,

  1. Open the Jira Settings Cog
  2. Selected System
  3. Opened Look and Feel from the left hand side
  4. Adjusted
    1. Day Format to EEE h:mm a
      1. Preview looks perfect
    2. Completed Date/time Format to EEE dd/MMM/yy h:mm a
      1. Preview looks perfect
    3. Day Month Year Format to EEE dd/MMM/yy
      1. Preview looks perfect
    4. ISO8601 is set to No
  5. As this changed nothing I then starting searching the Community and saw a reference to checking my Default Language settings in General Settings
    1. I checked under General Configuration and it is set to English (United Kingdom)  as I am in Australia this is correct.
    2. So this rendered a dead end
  6. There was then another answer about Advanced Settings
    1. I went in and used the links provided to enter EEE and %E in the relevant fields as pictured below.

I remain with the format displaying as May 31, 2021 when I refresh a ticket and go to // or /date a date in.  

Can anyone assist with what I am missing or have done wrong?

Thanks in advance.
