JIRA API comment created and update date formats inconsistent

In postman if I make the following call I get the correct comments with created date format:

http://{jira url}/rest/api/2/issue/{issuekey}/comment

This correctly returns:


"created": "2017-11-10T12:56:50.487+0000",
"updated": "2017-11-10T12:56:50.487+0000"

However if I use

http://{jira url}/rest/api/2/issue/{issuekey}/comment?expand=properties

Then properties gets expanded but also the dates become:


"created": "Friday 12:56 PM",
"updated": "Friday 12:56 PM",
"properties": []

The problem is I'm using the JIRA SDK (from nuget) which uses expand=properties and so comments can no longer get serialised. I get an error:

'Could not convert string to DateTime: Friday 11:44 AM. Path '[0].created', line 32, position 32.'

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hello, I just checked it. My Jira version is 7.2.2. It works correctly. Both responses are in the following format

"created": "2017-11-10T12:56:50.487+0000",
"updated": "2017-11-10T12:56:50.487+0000"

Thanks, I'm on 6.3 so it must have been fixed in a later version??

Maybe, not sure :) I do not have any other version to test on 

Thanks for your help

You are welcome
