import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Date
import java.sql.Timestamp
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue

def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey("issuekey")
def csDate1 = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("test_date1")
def csDate2 = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("test_date2")

Timestamp csDate1Value = (Timestamp) issue.getCustomFieldValue(csDate1)
Date csNewDateValue = new Date(csDate1Value.getTime() + 15*24*60*60*1000);
csDate2.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue("", (Object) csNewDateValue), new DefaultIssueChangeHolder())

Thanks a lot, I will try this.

15 means days if you want 9 days it would be 9*24*60*60*1000


Yes i understood. Thanks a lot
