Update on Transition for JIRA has Update issues post function. You will need use the findReplace substitution variable to get the date text out of the string. That can also be used to make sure the date gets specified in the correct format expected by JIRA for setting the date field.

Hello Vital,

You can use the post-function named "Copy Value From Other Field" from the JIRA Suite Utilities plugin. smile

Sorry, but I can't copy text value (I have unnecessary text "some_text (06-Dec-2014)" other than the date) to date field.

You can't copy, the data structures are not the same, but that's not a big hurdle, you can parse it.

What are you planning to write this function in?
