Script runner : how to get Resolution date to compare it with system date ?


Is this possible for me to get the resolution date or closure date, to compare it with system date ?

If there is a delay of 24 hours between them, I would lik to refuse the reopening of the issue ...

Thanks a lot

You can access the resolution date through


This is a Timestamp object which is a Date object, which you could use to compare it with the current date.

Thank you very much for your answer.

I am trying right now to use it to compare it with system date as written before.

Have a nice day !

Well, I've tried the following... but is does not work :-(

Do you think syntax is OK ?

Date now = new Date()
Date cfDate = new Date(issue.resolutionDate)
long elapsedTime= now.getTime() - cfDate.getTime()
boolean res = elapsedTime< 172800000 && elapsedTime>= 0


Date now = new Date()
long elapsedTime= now.getTime() - issue.resolutionDate.getTime()
boolean res = elapsedTime&lt; 172800000 &amp;&amp; elapsedTime&gt;= 0

But these are 48h if I calculated right... and make sure there is a resolution date.

Thank you Henning for your answer. I've tried this, but unfortunately it does not work. Perhaps because the resolution date is not specified like you think about.

I thought that a date was related to every step in JIRA... is this really ?

I mean :

- a creation date when you create an issue

- an update date, when you

- a resolution date,when you arrive at Resolved step

- a closure date, when you achieve the workflow, arriving at Closed step...

If an issue is resolved the resolutionDate should be defined. You should try to debug the script like so.

Date now = new Date()
log.error "now: $now"
log.error "resolutionDate: $issue.resolutionDate"
long elapsedTime= now.getTime() - issue.resolutionDate.getTime()
log.error "elapsedTime: $elapsedTime"
boolean res = elapsedTime&lt; 172800000 &amp;&amp; elapsedTime&gt;= 0

Take a look into catalina.out to see the output.
