How to change a custom field from date time picker to date picker (on demand JIRA)?

Hi Dalila,

Unfortunately you can not change the custom field type once it has been created. You have to delete the custom field first and recreate a new one with the correct type and same preferences.

Afterwards you can just add the new custom field to all screens to which the old date time picker belonged to.

Hope this helps?!

Hi Dalila,

This article also deals with changing custom field types, although it is a quite technical operation:

Thanks for the answer and the infos.

i didn't find in the technical way to transfrom a date time custoim field to a date custom field.

Could you please tell me if there is a way to fill the new field (date picker) i will have to create with the values of the old field (date time picker) to delete ?

Thanks.
