Is it possible to change the created date of a JIRA issue?

Is there a way to set a JIRA task's dates to a specific date rather than always "today"? I sometimes have to create a task days after the task has been done.

No, the created date is always the date you physically created the issue.

The exception is if you import issues with CSV, you can set it in that data. But you can't change it.

If you're logging issues and need to record a different date/time to when you're typing, most people use a custom field to record the actual date.

I don't think you can do that other than the database.

It can be done if you are using the JIRA import functionality. Map the task creation date in the CSV file to the "Created Date" feild in the JIRA import page. It will automatically choose the date from the CSV and not generate the created date as NOW by default.

Created Date field is not present in the drop down list.
