How to add costume field to work flow



We have a custom field "CloseDate" I would like to get the date in this CloseDarte filed when we are closing any tickets. I know we need to add this custom field to a workflow using post-function. I would like to know who can we add this to the workflow. I am using JIRA 7.4.4 Datacenter version. Please help me to achieve this.



Hi @Lokesh Gowda 

Welcome to the community.

Jira has already a field called Resolved. When you set the resolution on your issue the date is saved in this field.



The Management teams are asking the data need to be in CloseData only, Due to this, I am looking around it. Is there a way we can get this data to CloseData custom field 

Hi Mohamed,

Please suggest how to achieve this.

You can't do it automatically using postfunction. You will need an addon like Automation or Scriptrunner.

HI Mohamed,

Can I use Mygroovy plugin and write a groovy script to copy the Resolved to a custom field on post function. If yes can you help me with a groovy script?

Hi Mohamed,

I have added the groovy and getting the Close date but its showing as "2 days ago", "1 days ago" and 1 minute ago its not give the data. Please find the Groovy script and the custom field value.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10104") // Date time fields require a Timestamp
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date()).time))


CloseDateDate Time Picker


Can you please help me to solve this issue.

Hi Mohamed,
