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

jira.date.picker.java.format = MM/dd/yy

jira.date.picker.javascript.format = %m/%d/%Y

jira.date.time.picker.java.format = MM/dd/yy h:mm a

jira.date.time.picker.javascript.format = %m/%d/%y %I:%M %p

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

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

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?
