,How to change the date format on Jira Cloud

We currently have the date set as 18/Apr/19. The format for this is dd/MMM/yy We would prefer to have it as 18/04/19. What would be the format for this and where can we change it?

Has anyone managed to configure ISO 8601 date and time formats in Jira?
I've made all the changes as suggested in

but I'm now getting inconsistent behaviour, like sometimes dd/MM/yy and sometimes MM/dd/yy formats.

@Michael Alcock Please refer this documentation from Atlassian for the options you have for changing the date/time format:


Hope it helps !

@Taranjeet Singh 

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately, this doesn't help. I have already changed these settings, and it changed filter results etc.

On the forms however when you create and edit issues, the date fields still use the old format. Do i change this somewhere else?

Go to:

Jira Settings>System>General Configuration>Advanced Settings

Apply these settings: h:mm a %I:%M %p

I have done the setup to get more european look with 24 hour clock and all, using this giude:

That uses both the

Jira Settings>System>General Configuration>Advanced Settings

and Jira Settings>System>User Interface->Look and feel

But nothing changes, it is still the 12 hour am pm times i see when specifying dates, what gives?
