How to set a custom field as today's date on transition?

In Atlassian Support system, there is a custom field "first response date".

How do I add such a thing?

My plan with this field is setting first starting progress date when user starts his issue.

1. I added a custom date field.

2. I went to workflow, and found transtion "Start Progress", but I couldn't set such a condition.

Desired condition and action:

On "Start Progress" transition, or on the event of "Add Work-log"

If "Start Date" is EMPTY, set current date at "Start Date".

Thank you!

Best regards,

CJ Lee

Write your custom post function to caoture date and configure at "Start Progress" transition, i done this way

"Writing custom function", did you mean it like programming? or can I do this in JIRA GUI?

Yes, your are correct!
