1 answer

The related documentation page is here: https://www.meta-inf.hu/display/PLUG/How+to+Format+Date+and+Time+Values

One example is: 

#set($formatter = $!jetiFieldFormatter.getJavaDateTimeFormat("dd/MMM/yy")
$!jetiFieldFormatter.formatSafely($formatter, $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_12345"))

Thanks for your prompt reply,

Do i just include the first line anywhere in the email? and the second line where i want the value to display? it is giving me an error. with ALOT more line.

An error occurred whilst rendering this message. Please contact the administrators, and inform them of this bug. Details: ------- org.apache.velocity.exception.ParseErrorException: Encountered "/" at getEncodedBodyFromContent[line 3, column 2] Was expecting one of: "[" ... "{" ... "(" ... <WHITESPACE> ... <STRING_LITERAL> ... "true" ... "false" ... <INTEGER_LITERAL> ... <FLOATING_POINT_LITERAL> ... <IDENTIFIER> ... "{" ... <LOGICAL_NOT> ... at org.apache.velocity.runtime.RuntimeInstance.evaluate(RuntimeInstance.java:1202)

Sorry, a closing parenthesis was missing, it is correct in this: 

#set($formatter = $!jetiFieldFormatter.getJavaDateTimeFormat("dd/MMM/yy"))

You can put this anywhere in the template, the best is to put right at the first place you need the formatter.

thank you so much, to think all this time i did it right but missed a bracket! thank you so much.

in which file we need to place the above code.
