Jira Automation - How to format date from changelog

Hi community,


I have to transfer ticket from team-managed to company-managed.

Inside the team-managed project, users have created customfield with the date format and when I will move ticket to company-managed the value of this customfield will be deleted as the customfield only exists on the company-managed project.

My solution is to create a customfield and then retrieve value from team managed customfield.

I use jira automation to do it.

My rules is:

Trigger Issue Moved: from project A to project B

I create a variable and the smart value is based on changelog

Then I edit my company managed customfield with my variable.

Below my config

When I try my rule, I have the following error:

How I can format the changelog in order to have in jra date format?


Thank you

Adding to Mohamed's answer...

As you are using a text value (either from the changelog or the variable), it must first be converted to a date type before using it.  For example:


And if that does not work, you may need to parse the field with text functions to get the conversion to work.

Kind regards,

Hi Mohamed & Bill,


I tried {{estimation.jiraDate}} and it's not working.

@Bill Sheboy {{estimation.toDate}} works !!
