Transition Date/Time Field (JIRA Misc Custom Fields) is not showing time

I successfully setup transition date/time field, I thought.

but it's not showing time, only date.

How can I fix this? 


I can see time on view screen(detail view of issue), but it's not showing on issue list or exported excel file.

The display of transition date/time fields respects your general JIRA settings for the display of dates (e.g. "created" field). You can change it in JIRA's advanced settings.

As for the Excel export, it's an old JIRA bug...

Thanks for your reply,

in my JIRA's advanced settings, I think it has no problem. dd/MMM/yy %d/%b/%y %d/%b/%y %I:%M %p dd/MMM/yy h:mm a


Could you please recommend change required for the settings? 


edit/view screen (created date also with time)

I'm not sure what the problem is. As you can see, all date/time values, including for system fields, are shown as just the date in the issue navigator. That's a standard JIRA feature.

If you really need date and time, and you can live without sorting on that field (you can always display both versions), you can create a Calculated Text Field with the format you want.

Or you can raise a feature request on for the Transition Date/time fields to support custom formatting for issue view and issue lists - I believe it could be implemented fairly easily (just like for the Calculated Date/time fields).

OK. I just expected that Transition Date/time is showing time on the issue list as well. 

I will raise a feature request. thanks for you help.

It's said to be pretty much useless raising a Feature Request with Atlassian if there's already a commercial plugin that does the same thing. People selling expensive plugins are an important part of the Atlassian ecosystem.

Except the feature request was raised with Innovalog wink

I do understand your point @David Skreiner. My company is also using certain paid plugins for JIRA and Confluence. If the plugin provide functions we need, we're going to pay, of course.

In this case we have great free plugin and if we have enough time to wait until feature is provided, then why not? if we cannot wait any longer, we're going to buy other plugin. 

Also I think any suggestion can be considered, and then maybe developer can drop it. I am not forcing anything. 

I think this is also important for the ecosystem as well. 

thanks for your suggestion smile
