How do I default to current date on date custom field?
I have created custom date field and configured in my screen.
If the user open that screen for any update, I wanted to show the current date on that field instated of user to select a date from calendar.
is it possible? if so how to set up?
I need your help
Ahh, I see, it's the broken threading in Answers - you'd used "answer" instead of "comment" to reply to one of my comments. I've converted it, so the thread makes a bit more sense.
For the "default on screens", I just replied to Eva about that. I can't remember which plugin off the top of my head, pretty sure there's several in the plugin library, but I should emphasise that it is a post-function which will set the date to "now",and NOT a method to default it. The user won't get any choice - if the post-function is used, the date will be set to now, no matter what the user puts in the field.
@Eva8 you can create different contexts for your custom field, assigning different default values to different contexts.
Contexts can be "assigned" to IssueType and/or Projects.
If you wish to have different default values for different screens on different projects this would solve your issue.
This is Maggie and I am also using the Jira system. I also created a custom date field and wanted to show the current date on that field instated of user to select a date from calendar like Ganga. I followed what you said to set "Use current date as the default", but it didn't work. When I resolved an issue, the date field was blank, without any value there. Do I need to restart the Jira? Or do you kown what caused the problem? Thank you in advance.
Sorry for the disturbance and it works well now. I used previous data to show the default value of the custom date field, it didn't work. While if I create a new bug and then resolve, the date field will be filled with current date as the default value. In short, it works well now, and thank you for your answer.
