Create a Validation of custom date field while creating the issue using scriptrunner

Hi All ,


I have a custom field "Target Implemintation Date" which is on the customer screen, I have created a validation on the create Transition that will compare the date it have to be more than 14 days in the future, otherwise it won't create the issue.

I used a "custom Script Validator" with the following code, but nothing happanes, please help.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def targetDateField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Target Implementation Date")

def targetDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(targetDateField)

if (targetDate) {
    def currentDate = new Date()
    def futureDate = currentDate + 14

    if (targetDate > futureDate) {
        return true
error ("please change the date ro be at least 14 days in the future")

Hi @tamer_afifi 


First, I may suggest some changes in your code.

Don't use the getCustomFieldObjectByName() method as it's deprecated. Instead, you can use the below code to get the custom field by its ID value (simply replace 'xxxxx' with your custom field long ID value.

def targetDateField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_xxxxx")
In the else part of your code please use
throw new InvalidInputException("please change the date to be at least 14 days in the future")
I hope it helps
