Behaviour plugin doesn't pickup the time value while fetching value for date time type custom field

FormField startDate=getFieldById("customfield_XXXX")


now if suppose customfield_XXXXX has value 27/Apr/15 10:30 AM.


I am getting startDateValue1 as Mon Apr 27 00:00:00 UTC 2015 which is missing the time part completely.

JIRA Version : 6.1.7


Behaviour Plugin : 0.5.10

Has anyone noticed this

Thanks in advance

I have written a groovy script to do the needful , can close this thread now. Any research will still be an help.




Hi Sumit, Where is the script??

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import java.sql.Timestamp

Logger log = Logger.getLogger("Filling EndTime")

ComponentAccessor comAcc=new ComponentAccessor()
CustomFieldManager cfm = comAcc.getCustomFieldManager()

CustomField startTime = cfm.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_ABC') // id to be changed
CustomField endTime = cfm.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_BCD') // id to be changed
CustomField duration = cfm.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_CDE') // id to be changed


// log.debug("Updating Time")
// log.debug("startTimeValue ::: ${startTimeValue}")
// log.debug("durationValue ::: ${durationValue}")
// log.debug("endTimeValue ::: ${endTimeValue}")
long value
if (startTimeValue!=null && durationValue!=null){
value=((startTimeValue.getTime()/(1000*60)) + durationValue)*1000*60
newtime =new Timestamp(value)
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
endTime.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(endTime), newtime),changeHolder)


return null

Hi Jamie, I'm meeting the same issue when trying to set a default date of a date/time custom field value from another one.

Can you help us please?

FormField slaveField1 = getFieldById ("customfield_10406")
FormField masterField = getFieldById ("customfield_10404")
Date master = (Date) masterField.getValue()
slaveField1.setFormValue(master.format("dd/MM/yy HH:mm"));


I am facing the issue. How do i get the date and time from datetime custom field?

I have a field called Release Window as dropdown (Window A, Window B) and another field RFC deployment date / time as Custom Datetime field.

If the user choose any time another than Tuesday 6 PM to Wednesday 5.30 AM, i would like to display a error message immediately. I am using behavior script to achieve this.

The issue is ld_rfcdeploymentdate returning the value only with date and time stamp is showing as 00.00.0

FormField rfcdeploymentdate = getFieldByName ("RFC Deployment Date")  

Date ld_rfcdeploymentdate = rfcdeploymentdate.getValue()


Window ATuesday 6:00pm - 5:30am
Window BThursday 6:00pm - 5:30am
