Compare two date fields and validate transition

I have two custom date fields: Start Date and End Date.

I want to check if End Date is set before Start Date in which case I want to stop ticket creation and let the users know that End Date cannot be set before Start Date.

I do have scriptrunner, but I didn't find a straightforward solution.

Thank you!

Hi @Bojan Virag

you could use a custom script condition with the following code:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def cfStartDate = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Start Date").first()
def cfEndDate = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("End Date").first()
def startDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfStartDate) as Date
def endDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfEndDate) as Date

passesCondition = (startDate != null && endDate!= null && startDate <= endDate)

Thank you for the complete solution @Andrea Pannitti ! I will give it a try later today and post the result.

Hi @Bojan Virag

if my solution is fine for you, please, could you accept it?


Thank you
