Velocity | Display formatted date / time


I am trying to display a formatted time in JIRA as a result of a custom field. But for some reason all I get is the velocity syntax, rather than the actual time.

This is what I have in my JAVA file:

updateValue(field, mu,  new Timestamp(date.getTime())); 
map.put("UTC", new Timestamp(date.getTime())); 

This in my velocity file:


If I put ``$!value'' alone in the velocity file, it does show the timestamp, but not in the right format (it is not consitent with the other time definitions displayed in the issue, created, updated, etc)

When I use this velocit, I get a date but not in the right format:


Is there a way to change this behaviour?

Don't know if this will help you, but it was the only way for me to get a date to show up...
