Problem facing in date format while extracting excel view ?

Hi All,

I have developed a custom plugin. In that plugin while extracting the excel sheet, there we are having one field named as "Created". In this field, date format is not showing as in html view. When we change the settings in excel sheet then only i am able to see the correct date format.

Kindly suggest to resolve this

Hi Jayasingh

Is this a plugin related to JIRA?

If it is, have you tried to review the content from Look and Feel and from Administration -> General Configuration -> Advanced?

In the Look and Feel screen you will be able to edit date/time format and on Advaced General Configuration you will be able to check the generated dates format (which I believe will affect what you want).

You have to give more details, Jaya.

  1. What is this 'extracting the excel sheet'? Is this the Excel view from Issue Navigator?
  2. Is your pluging adding a custom field?
  3. If yes, when you open the excel sheet in a text editor what value are you seeing in that field?
  4. When you say it is not showing correct format, what is it showing?
