How to compare current day with my custom field maintenance date (dtMWDATE)?

Hi,

I'm trying to compare the maintenance date (dtMWDATE), that is my custom field, with the current day. So what I'm trying to do is everytime that user select a data for maintanece (dtMWDATE) and this date is out dated, the script should fill this  custom field value with current date

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ErrorCollection
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

Class SubTask = new GroovyClassLoader(getClass().getClassLoader()).parseClass(new File("./scripts/tools/SubTask.groovy"));

def myissue = "SDP-8908"
IssueManager issueManagerManual = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
Issue issue = issueManagerManual.getIssueObject("$myissue")

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
ErrorCollection errCollection;

def strStartDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Start Date')
def dtStartDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(strStartDate)

def strMWDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('MW Date')
def dtMWDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(strMWDate)

CustomField omCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('O&M Assignee')
def om = issue.getCustomFieldValue(omCf)

String userOm = null

if (om == null){
userOm = null
} else {
userOm = om.name
}

def subTask1 = SubTask.createSubTask(issue, "Prepare Testbed", "SPB", "O&M task", ((dtMWDate-7 <= date)? date: dtMWDate-7), dtStartDate, null, userOm)


def subTask6 = SubTask.createSubTask(issue, "Execute Maintenance Window", "SPB", "MW task", dtMWDate, dtStartDate, dtMWDate, userOm, "MW")
//SubTask.setLabel(subTask6, "MW")

I'm did a little search and I found this:

dtMWDate-7 <= date)? date: dtMWDate-7

Is it right? Or do i missing some declaration on date?

 

Thank you!

You can get the current date like this:

Date date = new Date()

And then you can cast your custom field values to a Date like this:

def dtStartDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(strStartDate) as Date

Your script should look something like this, but I haven't tested it:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ErrorCollection
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

Class SubTask = new GroovyClassLoader(getClass().getClassLoader()).parseClass(new File("./scripts/tools/SubTask.groovy"));

def myissue = "SDP-8908"
IssueManager issueManagerManual = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
Issue issue = issueManagerManual.getIssueObject("$myissue")

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
ErrorCollection errCollection;

def strStartDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Start Date')
def dtStartDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(strStartDate) as Date

def strMWDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('MW Date')
def dtMWDate = issue.getCustomFieldValue(strMWDate) as Date

CustomField omCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('O&M Assignee')
def om = issue.getCustomFieldValue(omCf)

String userOm = null

if (om == null){
userOm = null
} else {
userOm = om.name
}

Date date = new Date()
def subTask1 = SubTask.createSubTask(issue, "Prepare Testbed", "SPB", "O&M task", ((dtMWDate-7 <= date)? date: dtMWDate-7), dtStartDate, null, userOm)

def subTask6 = SubTask.createSubTask(issue, "Execute Maintenance Window", "SPB", "MW task", dtMWDate, dtStartDate, dtMWDate, userOm, "MW")
//SubTask.setLabel(subTask6, "MW")
