JIRA Custom Field - Date Format


Does anyone know how to configure the format of a custom date/time field. We'd like to display the full date and time not the calculated time.

Hovering over shows the correct.

You can't disable it for only one field. If it is OK for all the date time fields you can follow tutorial from Atlassian

Thanks Tansu - I guess this makes sense... it would be nice to apply custom formatter on custom fields on an individual basis however

DateTIme custom field type displays both date and time.


You may want to look here for info about date/time field format:





The Date Time Picker custom field type stores date and time but is displaying as:

"in 23 days" not the one of the formats dd/MMM/yy.

Unsure how to change this so the screenshot above says 23/Apr/14 6:34AM.


Anyone have an idea?
