Date field accepting five digit year


We are using Jira Version: 4.4.5. In our jira MM/dd/yyyy %m/%d/%Y

But when we are editing or creating an issue. In the date fields jira is accepting five digit year format for eg: 03/06/20113. Because of that we are getting problem.

Um, well, that's actually still a valid year. I don't think there's a simple fix for this - the checking code would need to be amended.

You mean AJS code for that custom field.

Indeed, although it's the code for the field type, not the individual field.

So, where we need to add the validation. Can you elaborate.

Because while moving issues from one issue type to another issues type or convert as a subtask we are getting error.

I stay away from fiddling with javascript, and I'm not really sure where the js validators for date fields might be found. You will be into

However, I would start with a look at debugging the moving of issue type - that doesn't involve javascript at all so you may have another problem which "fixing" the date check isn't going to help with.
