Automatically record a date?

Hi Guys,


We are using JIRA on demand and would like to some how record a date of when a story moves into a particular status(s). This is actually to track cycle time, and we know that it logs it down in the history but we need to export a single date of when the story was moved into play (as opposed to created)


any ideas and thoughts would much be appreciated!!

Hi Steve,

You can add custom date fields and fill them during transitions. You can auto populate the fileds via JavaScript or use JIRA Suite Utilities plugin (it's preinstalled on my ondemand JIRA):

Hi Volodymyr, thanks for the response... i followed those instructions but it looks like there are only a number of fields available in the drop down list, none of which are Custom Fields... do you know how i get the custom fields to appear in that drop down list?

I couldn't attach a screen dump, but this was the drop down list i was referring too... it does not display any custom fields, just generic JIRA issue fields.



Anyone facing a similar problem to this?
