How to set today date into a customfield to propose it to the user?. User should be able to change the date.

I would like to propose the current day as the default date for "Delivery Date" customfield when user executes a transition "Deliver". In this transition the "Delivery Date" is required, the current date must be proposed and the user should be able to change it.

You can use the Update Field post function from JIRA Suite Utilities. Use %%CURRENT_DATETIME%% as the value.

Yes but in this case user shouldn't be able to change it during the transition execution. I'll like to propose the date to the user. User must confirm this date.

Oh ok. In that case, you will have to set the date in some javascript funtion.


Yes, but I've read that JavaScript is not recomended now in Jira....

Not sure where you read that but JIRA itself uses Javascript everywhere. Depends on how you use it. You can also write a new custom field type if you can.

Ok Thanks! I'll try with JavaScript
