Looking to configure our JIRA isntance to always show absolute dates (e.g. 5/22/2013) instead of Relative dates (e.g. Wednseday) when viewing issues.
I have referenced these two pages but I do not think they apply to my problem:
<default-value>true</default-value> <<<< Put to "false"
This works for me with Jira 7.12. (Server and Data Center)
This action showing absolute dates
@Francisco Morgado Gonzalez, per this page:
you should NEVER update the jpm.xml file as these changes will not be migrated when you upgrade to a new version of software. This file is for defaults only.
This page provides instructions for turning off the relative dates and worked for me:
Hi @Tomáš Vrabec ,
I've tried your app, and unfortunately had to de-install it as it only corrects the date format for issues comments & history.
Since I'm using Xray to print out traceability reports to our customers, I still need to provide an information that gives better information than "yesterday" or "4 days ago". If you're involved in MoroSystems, please feel free to provide a solution that replaces the workaround quoted above, with jira.lf.date.relativize parameter value update.
Unfortunately, this workaround does not work anymore for very recent JIRA server versions, as stated in JRASERVER-41506 comments. That is why I have asked Atlassian to re-open it.
Hi @Damien de Paysac I am not anymore involved within this solution partner, but still do have a lot friends over there.
Lets try to tag them, and hopefully someone will take care about your suggestion :-)
Hello @MoroSystems Support could you take a look this suggestion? Relative Time converter should be maintained as its very useful and personally - its part of the architecture for every customer I am working with :-)
Have a nice day guys!
Another option that avoids the need to create or modify jira-config.properties is to add this setting to the jira database. Here is SQL that will insert the setting into a PostgreSQL DB:
select max(id)+1 as id into newid from propertyentry;
insert into propertynumber (id,propertyvalue) values (newid.id,0);
insert into propertyentry (id, entity_name, entity_id, property_key, propertytype) values (newid.id,'jira.properties',1,'jira.lf.date.relativize',1);
drop table newid;
