JQL Syntax to Check the Deployment Date (Field) Is Greater Than 24h or 1d

We have an inline validator script on Create to allow submission if the deployment date is more than 24h in advance.

cfValues['Deployment Date/Timne']?.value > "1d"

Can you please advise why this is not working?

Thank you.

Are you using a add-on for the script?

It's because date and time are stored in, well, date/time format.  Not the "pretty" format that JIRA displays and accepts input in.  Even if it returned a pretty date format, a simple ">" is not going to understand it.  And you have not told it what your 1d is relative to either.

I can't remember if the return value is seconds or milliseconds, but it will be a large number representing the number of them elapsed since a base date.

Your code should do something more like "value > ( now + (24 x 60 x 60) )".  (This is for seconds, of course, you may need to multiply it by a further 1,000 for milliseconds)
