Is it possible to restrict the Due Date field entry to only take today's and future dates but not past?

I need to setup the Due Date field to accept only Today's and future dates, but not past dates. Can this be done within JIRA Service Desk?

Hello Jaime,

You can do this using a validator, so before to create an issue, first it will validate using the options that you set (e.g Users can’t set the _Due Date_ field if it’s before the date from now).
To achieve this, first you will have to install the JIRA Tool Kit Plugin:] which will have extra validators options

Hello Rodrigo .... I have installed the JIRA Tool Kit Plugin. Where in the system can I setup the validator for my Due Date field?

Edit "Create" transition and add new condition "Date Expression Compare".

Is this gonna work when the user edits the issue? I mean, will it do the validation in the Edit screen?
