What Type of JIRA Field is the Created & Resolved Time?


We are using the Salesforce & JIRA Connector and while mapping the Created & Resolved field type to a string works, we get and error when mapping it to a Salesforce Date/Time field. The Date/Time field should work if we are mapping to a Date & Time Picker field type in JIRA.

So what are the Created Date & Resolved time field types? Date only? I know they are default fields out of the box so I cannot check their field type.

Date Picker Date
Date Time Picker Date/Time

Technically, in terms of code, those fields are of "types" called "Created Date" and "Resolved Date".

The data within those types is a Date/Time though, stored as date/time stamps in the database, and when connecting over REST or using them in plugin code, you can treat them the same as custom fields that are of the "date/time" type.

I think it might help if you shared the error message.
