We're on JIRA cloud and are trying out the ScriptRunner addon. Is it possible to set a custom date picker field with the current date/time in a workflow transition's post function? If so, how would I do so?
By playing around with a test workflow, I think I found what you need:
I have not tested this, but I'm trusting what I read on screen on Step 6 as JIRA shows:
Please make sure that the value you enter is valid for custom field its datatype
and context configuration for the project using this workflow.
Otherwise, the transition may fail at execution time.
Additionally to enter text or numbers as value, you may use the following:
- You may use macro '%%CURRENT_USER%%' to insert the function caller.
- You may use macro '%%CURRENT_DATETIME%%' to insert the current date and time.
- You may use macro '%%ADD_CURRENT_USER%%' to append the function caller. Obsolete please use append option instead with user macro above.
- For Cascading Select fields, you may either use the value of the option to be selected, no need to add the parent for childs. Or simply enter the ID of the option to be selected.
@Lexi Pike Just occurred to me that you can probably use the jira automation feature to set it if your instance has it available or if you're on cloud. It allows for smart dates that you can assign offset dates to fields on. It's slightly technical but all point and click with text boxes to do.
Here is code for custom script post-function:
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue import com.atlassian.jira.issue.UpdateIssueRequest import java.sql.Timestamp issue.setCustomFieldValue( ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("customFieldname") , new Timestamp() ) //only for create transition /* ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue( ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser() , issue , UpdateIssueRequest.builder().sendMail(false).eventDispatchOption(EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED).build() ) */
Edit your workflow, add new post-function on the action of type "Script Post-function".
Choose "Modify Issue" function.
Enter the following code:
issueInput.fields.customfield_10132 = new Date().format("yyyy-MM-dd")
where 10132 is the ID of the custom field you want to update.
I'm getting this error now. Is there any way to set this field without having to surface it on my screens? I'd rather not allow users to change this value.

I dont have script runner.
I want only the month to be updated in the custom field. Is there any macro similar to %%CURRENT_DATETIME%% available for the same.
Could there be any solution, either a direct macro for month, or to extract only the month part from the datetime, and populate it to another custom field.
