date time picker field edit and view seconds


Is there a way to edit or view seconds in the field "Date time picker"? (it's only possible in the create view which is disturbing)

I change the following options in Jira's settings to adjust the format. 

System > General Configuration > Advanced Settings dd/MMM/yy hh:mm:ss a %e/%b/%y %I:%M:%S %p

System > User Interface > Look and Feel

Time Format: hh:mm:ss a 

Day Format: EEEE hh:mm:ss a

Complete Date/Time Format: dd/MMM/yy hh:mm:ss a


I am aware of the two following closed Jira tickets and the workaround provided but its just dealing with the date format which is another not resolved issue...




is there a workaround or some open Jira ticket that deal with this problem (viewing or editing seconds after issue creation)?

Hello @Abdeladim EL AOUMARI,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Testing on my local site and changing the date/time format, the seconds are not visible on the new issue view.

The configuration would be:

Advanced settings: - dd/MMM/yy h:mm a s - %e/%b/%y %I:%M %p %S

Look and feel:

Complete Date/Time Format - dd/MMM/yy h:mm a s

Based on that, I created a feature request suggesting adding the option on the new view as well. I also linked those bugs and other feature to this one:

Please, click on vote and also watch the feature to receive future updates.

Kind regards,

Hello @Angélica Luz ,

Thanks for taking the time to create this feature request.

However I dont really see why this ticket is it under a suggestion. Its clear that this problem is a BUG in the view screen.

The new view screen does not consider the configuration in Look and feel and Advanced settings. its not only not showing seconds, but also the date/time format are always under the american format whatever the configuration is. Plus as I mention in the original question, everything is working properly in the create screen as configured in Look and feel and Advanced settings.

Hi @Abdeladim EL AOUMARI,

Thank you for your feedback. I created a feature request based on this other one since the bug was closed. 

I can move from Suggestion to Bug, but it would probably be closed as “Not a bug”, so I prefer to let it a Suggestion so everyone can vote.

I already mentioned this ticket to the team that is working on the Date/Time feature, not we must wait until it is implemented.

Plus as I mention in the original question, everything is working properly in the create screen as configured in Look and feel and Advanced settings.

It works on the create screen because the new view wasn’t implemented to this screen yet:
