format Due Date

I have gone into the System --> Look and Feel settings and changes the date format to MM/dd/yy, but when i create an issue, the Due Date is still using the 8//Nov/13.

How do i change the format of the Due Date so that it takes a MM/dd/yy date format?

Thank you. That did it..

For anyone else that is looking to update the dates to MM/dd/yy value, here are the settings I ended up using...

Under General Configuration --> Advanced settings = MM/dd/yy = %m/%d/%Y = MM/dd/yy h:mm a = %m/%d/%y %I:%M %p

I did change that to MM/dd/yy, but the Due Date still shows in the default format

I still have this issue and can't fix. My due date is in YYYY/MM/DD, how can I change it to DD.MM.YYYY?

Same here =( Just figure this out. Seems to be ignoring everything, even advanced settings

Like TOTHOMweb likes this

nothing works for me. No matter what I change it to i'm getting the same YY/mm/dd.

Why is this so difficult and why jira hasn't properly addressed it yet??

me too! If you have found a way please share.

Months later it's still not working. Where's JIRA team? Sleeping?

This resolves the picker config when opening an issue, but only there. Is this an issue, bug, test?

Jira-Cloud: I've tried to change it according to 

but still is in the old way: YYYY/MM/DD

Try this solution, guys. 


I don't have an idea. I can change it in my enviroment. Is jira installed in your enviroment?Did you try to restrart jira's service?

Just checking: In "Day/Month/Year Format" field in "Date/Time Formats" section?
