Thank you @Francesc_Arbó. This is a working answer. Troubled that it was given for the server version. It turned out that in this part of the solution for the cloud and the server are identical.

Hello @Мочалов Илья,

@Francesc_Arbó's link will work if you're on Jira Server, but it looks like you're on Jira Cloud so you'd rather go to this link: Configuring the look and feel of your Jira applications > How to change date and time formats.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the update @Мочалов Илья!

Unfortunately on my cloud version, changing the time format in the basic setting (, did not change the display in the custom field (field:

Are there any other ideas?

Ah, indeed, I didn't understand you wanted to change the date/time picker format. I'm not sure you can change that in Cloud, you'd better reach out to Atlassian support to check if they can do it for you.
