Date format in issues doesn't apply to input

I changed the date format in Admin>System>Look and feel to "dd.MM.yy" which is more handy to enter manually (this format is widely used in Europe). I updated both Complete Date/Time Format and Day/Month/Year Format.

The output rendering works as expected but it is *not possible* to enter a date in this format (it still accept the usual 15/Sep/13 format). This makes the feature useless.

Did somebody try this feature on OnDemand with success ?

What could be wrong ?

hello Patrick Thielen

you also need to change the following as

jira.date.picker.java.format
This part is only for the Java (server side) generated dates. Note that this should correspond to the javascript date picker format (jira.date.picker.javascript.format) setting.
dd.MM.yy
jira.date.picker.javascript.format
This part is only for the JavaScript (client side) generated dates. Note that this should correspond to the java date picker format (jira.date.picker.java.format) setting.
in Admin>System>General Configuration>Advanced
%d.%m.%y

Thanks Jannu,

the problem is "on demand" users to have access to advanced settings page. You have to ask the support to do it for you.

Now they did and date input in desired format work in JIRA issues but not in Tempo worklogs. Do you know how to set the date format for Tempo ?

Hi Patrick,

I think for the Tempo questions you might want to ask it in their issue tracker, or alternatively add a tag in your question to include Tempo

Patrick, I'm not familiar how to set Dateformat in Tempo.
