Script Runner -- how do I pull Created Date information from an issue?

Hi,

This is silly, but I am stumped. I am trying to get the created date for an issue. I have a custom Date Picker Field, that needs to be populated by a date that is derived from the Created date plus x number of days based on some logic.

However -- when I try to get the created date, I get an error that I am trying to cast a boolean (see below screenshot).

I am running Jira 5.2.6, and Script Runner 2.1.11

When I look at 5.2.6 API for com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl, it seems like I should be able to call created -- or getCreated -- and that 'isCreated' is the boolean?

Any tips much appreciated!

You provided your answer :-) Try issue.getCreated(). Sometimes it's not clear for Groovy which method to call...

Ha! You're right. I could have sworn I tried that as well. Maybe I had some weird caching goin on. Anyway, this works:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

myissue = "TESTPMGMT-17"
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager()

Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("$myissue")

Date Created = issue.getCreated()

I will mark your answer as correct. Thanks for the help!

yep, ".created" will call isCreated() in preference to getCreated(). IIRC this is the only place where I've had this problem.
