Editing Jira date and time format

Hi all,

I'm wanting to change the Jira date and time format to dd/MMM/yy (e.g. 06/Oct/20).

I know that I need to edit the and the Keys in the Jira admin advanced settings, as well as the date format in the Look and Feel Sections, and have followed the documentation here to change the format to my desired format.

However, Jira is still displaying 2020/10/14, with the year appearing at the start... Does anyone have any clue why this may be?? This isn't even Jira's default date format!

Hello Callum,

Thank you for your question.

The issue that you are facing is related to a bug on the new issue view.

Please, click on "This affects my team" and also watch to receive updates about the bug.

If you are using a classic project, the workaround, for now, is to use the old view.

Situation 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.

Hello Miguel,

Thanks 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,
