Editing the start date or release date of a version does not work. The date goes to another date instead of the date I tried to set. I tried setting the date from the Version page using the Edit command and also on the Version view of the issues list using the Pencil command.
I am only trying to change the dates from 7/6/2017 and 7/17/2017 to 7/7/2017 and 7/18/207. Basically, just shifting the dates by 1 day.
I also tried deleting the dates and adding them back in, but they still don't want to accept the dates I entered.
Hi @Gregory Cline,
From looking over this, it just feels like this is being caused by the documented bug that Ann mentioned in
What I believe is happening is that Jira is actually displaying a date such as 7/17/2017, but on the backend, it's actually storing this date/time in a format such as MM/DD/YYYY mm:hh in the database. As such, Jira is likely choose a time such as a midnight so that the time is stored to the server as 7/17/2017 00:00. If your profile is even one timezone behind the application/server then Jira could be adjusting the time to cause your display to be 7/16/2017 23:00 to your timezone. It's the same time, just a different reference point based on a difference of timezone between the Jira application itself, and the user profile viewing that release date. So this can explain why the date appears exactly one day behind what you actually input.
By default, Jira is using the timezone of the operating system is it running on. However this can be changed to an explicit timezone that is different than the OS timezone as mentioned in Setting the timezone for the Java environment
So if your Jira startup options have this parameter defined, then Jira itself is using a different time zone than the server it is running on.
It would probably also help to compare that against the timezone set in your user profile.
I am experiencing this issue as well. Here's some more information:
I don't know how to fix this either, seems like a jira bug.
