JIRA Misc Custom Fields: CalculatedDateField repeating error

RE: JIRA Misc Custom Fields

Hi, the following error is spamming our JIRA logs:

2015-06-19 15:29:04,099 http-bio-8080-exec-1213 WARN alarmobot 929x3011493x6 7ejbgb, /rest/api/2/search [innovalog.jmcf.fields.CalculatedDateField] CalculatedDateField: could not find formula in custom field description


What is the best way to resolve this problem?

1 answer

This is caused by a Calculated Date/Time custom field, whose formula cannot be found in the field description, at least not in the expected way.

You should review your Calculated date/time fields to find the one that is incorrectly configured.

Also, if the bottom of the "Custom fields" page looks odd, with the last custom field missing some action links, it is likely that you did not close an html comment in the description for that field.

I encounter that issue. 

How can I remove that bottom custom field from JIRA now? 


The easiest is to look inside your JIRA logfile (atlassian-jira.log) for an ERROR related to com.innovalog.jmcf. The error will include a sentence similar to "Navigate to the following URL to edit the formula" followed by a URL. Use this URL to go directly to the edit screen of the calculated custom field that is improperly configured.
