How can I make a simple custom field with the month only in MM format?

I know this should be a simple task but I can't seem to figure out how to create a custom field that displays the month only in MM format when a ticket gets closed, we are trying to set this up for Barchart reporting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would simply install the script runner plugin, add a scripted field and add this code.

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
return new SimpleDateFormat("MM").format(new Date(issue.getResolutionDate().getTime()))

How about a select list custom field with all the months as the list of selections? They come with JIRA, so you dont have to write your own.

I'm trying to make it so it's automatic, ultimately it would be great to get the MM value from the system field "End dat / time" but it really doesn't matter where it comes from, I just need it to be automatic. Thanks for the suggestion though

1/ Create a read-only CF.

2/ Fill it using some scripting on a listener (or craete your own listener), postfunction or whatever (depends on your wf, screens, etc)

Edit: check if this calculated CF may help you.
