MISC Custom Fields: Calculate person's age

Hi! i'm using JIRA 6.3.9


I have date of birth, and i need JIRA to count his age.

I tryed this formula:

<!-- @@Formula: issue.get("created")==null ? null : ((new Date().getTime()) - issue.get("customfield_xxxxx").getTime()) / 1000 / 31536000 -->

It works close, but not perfect. If i put date of birth 20 december 1974 - it will count 40 years (instead of 39)

That's because the value is rounded up to the nearest integer. If you want to truncate the value instead, use Math.floor( ):

&lt;!-- @@Formula: issue.get("created")==null ? null : Math.floor(((new Date().getTime()) - issue.get("customfield_xxxxx").getTime()) / 1000.0 / 31536000) --&gt;

still 40 years. I think thats because it don't count 29 february every 4 years

Yes, you should divide by 31557600 (365,25 days per year).
