Show date of last update on custom field

Kate McGladdery April 8, 2024

I have used the below code to work out when the custom field (called Key Accomplishments) was last update. However, it's showing a list of numbers (i.e 1701948951000) and I'm looking for it to show the date. Does anyone know how I can convert the numbers to be a date format? I can see on the history of the issue that this should be showing 07/Dec/23 11:35 AM.

I had that same issue but couldn't get Jira to spit it out in a readable form. I wound up creating a custom field "Date X Finished" and creating an automation rule to update that custom field with today's date any time the issue I was tracking had it's status changed.

Hey Kate,

Not sure on that exact code. But we do something similar to populate a custom Paragraph field with a running list of changes to the field. You could just overwrite the value instead of adding to it each time if you like.
