Script to check the Release Date of Versions

Hello everybody,

I need a script example to check the Release Date of versions. I have to check if the release date is empty or is the release date before or after a defined data. I am not good in scripting and need help for this because I don't know how to check this with groovy script.

thank you for help

Best Regards

Yep, from the context of an issue:


check that returned list for nulls or dates before date X.

other question, how can I find out via script if a version is released or not?

You could use



And for more information about a JIRA version you could check :-)


How to get current issue version startdate?

You could use this as a template to access the release dates of all versions of one project from the Script Runner console.

sourceProjectKey = 'XXX'
srcProjectObj = componentManager.projectManager.getProjectObjByKey(sourceProjectKey) 
srcProjectObj.versions?.each { srcVersion ->
	if (!srcVersion.releaseDate) {
		// Release Date is empty


Further requirement to create a scripted field to return the release date of the fix version of the issue.

This is required to allow new common field, across all projects, to filter by release date.



I have a custom field VersionPicker for a single Version.

How is the code to check the release date of the version selected in VersionPicker? (in a script)?

I tried something similar to the above code (issue.fixVersions*.releaseDate) but it does not work
