Update Due Date

Hi guys,

I am trying to update the due date with a groovy script. I have found different solutions on the community but it doesn't work for me. 

I have the following error : groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: com.atlassian.jira.issue.DocumentIssueImpl.setDueDate() is applicable for argument types: (java.sql.Timestamp) values: [2017-09-20 13:54:25.408] Possible solutions: getDueDate()

I don't find the method setDueDate in the last Jira Api, is it depreciated ? 

And when I try to directly modify the value 

it.dueDate = mydueDate

, I have an error message which says that the value is read only.

Any idea ? Here is my code ?

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.search.SearchService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

import java.sql.Timestamp


ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
WorkflowTransitionUtil workflowTransitionUtil = ( WorkflowTransitionUtil ) JiraUtils.loadComponent( WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class );


String userString = UserUtils.getUser('admin').name

def jqlSearch = "project = 'RPD'"
List<Issue> issues = null
def newRPDDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject((long) 27800)

SearchService.ParseResult parseResult =  searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)

if (parseResult.isValid()) {
    def searchResult = searchService.search(user, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
    issues = searchResult.getIssues()
    for(Issue it : issues){
        /*workflowTransitionUtil.setIssue(it);
        workflowTransitionUtil.setUsername(user);
        workflowTransitionUtil.setAction (51)*/
        Calendar myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance()
        myCalendar.setTime(it.getDueDate())
        myCalendar.add(Calendar.MONTH,3)

        //String[] splited = it.getDueDate().toString().split("\\s+");
        Timestamp mydueDate = new Timestamp(myCalendar.getTimeInMillis()+ 90*1000*24*60*60)
        //it.setDueDate(new Timestamp(myCalendar.getTime().time))
        it.setDueDate(mydueDate)
        //it.dueDate = mydueDate
        return it.dueDate

        return it.key
        return splited[0]
    }
}

I have understand my mistake, this method works with the MutableIssue. I need to cast my objects DocumentIssueImpl to MutableIssue to use the method but I don't know how to do it.

I have change my request to get IssueImpl and it works well now.

I put my code here if it can help someone :

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.search.SearchService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.user.UserUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import com.opensymphony.workflow.WorkflowContext
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.util.JiraUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

import java.sql.Timestamp


ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
WorkflowTransitionUtil workflowTransitionUtil = ( WorkflowTransitionUtil ) JiraUtils.loadComponent( WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class );


String userString = UserUtils.getUser('admin').name

def jqlSearch = "project = 'RPD' AND issuetype = Task"
List<Issue> issues = null
def newRPDDate = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject((long) 27800)

SearchService.ParseResult parseResult =  searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)

if (parseResult.isValid()) {
    def searchResult = searchService.search(user, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
    issues = searchResult.issues.collect { issueManager.getIssueObject(it.id) }
    for(Issue it : issues){
        workflowTransitionUtil.setIssue(it);
        workflowTransitionUtil.setUsername(user);
        workflowTransitionUtil.setAction (51)
        Calendar myCalendar = Calendar.getInstance()
        myCalendar.setTime(it.getDueDate())
        myCalendar.add(Calendar.MONTH,3)

        it.setDueDate(new Timestamp(myCalendar.getTime().time))
        it.store()


       // return it.key
    }
}

Would this make it so that the due date goes up every day even whn using the card repater?
