groovy -- having problems getting date in human readable format -- tips?

Hi guys,

How do I get human readable date from this? I can't get it to work. The closest I can get is the last login information in millisecond time?

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.security.login.LoginService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.CrowdService
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.UserWithAttributes
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import java.sql.Timestamp



def result = ""

def groupNames = [
        'jira-users',
]

CrowdService crowdService = ComponentAccessor.crowdService
UserWithAttributes user
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.userUtil
LoginService loginService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LoginService)


userUtil.getAllUsersInGroupNamesUnsorted(groupNames).findAll { it.isActive() }.each {
    user = crowdService.getUserWithAttributes(it.getName())


    Long lastLoginTime = loginService.getLoginInfo(user.name).getLastLoginTime()

    if (lastLoginTime != NULL) {
        Timestamp lastLoginTimeStamp = new Timestamp(lastLoginTime as long);
        result += "User ${user.name} logged in: " + lastLoginTimeStamp + "\r\n"
    } else {
        result += "User ${user.name} logged in: " + "\t" + 'NULL' + "\r\n"


    }

}



}
return result

--tips appreciated!

Hi,

This script runs well for me. It shows timestamp in human readable format.

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.security.login.LoginService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.CrowdService
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.UserWithAttributes
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import java.sql.Timestamp

def result = ""

def groupNames = [
'jira-users',
]

CrowdService crowdService = ComponentAccessor.crowdService
UserWithAttributes user
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.userUtil
LoginService loginService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LoginService)

userUtil.getAllUsersInGroupNamesUnsorted(groupNames).findAll { it.isActive() }.each {
user = crowdService.getUserWithAttributes(it.getName())

if (loginService.getLoginInfo(user.name).getLastLoginTime() > 0) {
Long lastLoginTime = loginService.getLoginInfo(user.name).getLastLoginTime()

Timestamp lastLoginTimeStamp = new Timestamp(lastLoginTime as long);
result += "User ${user.name} logged in: " + lastLoginTimeStamp + "\r\n"
}else {
        result += "User ${user.name} logged in: " + "\t" + 'NULL' + "\r\n"
 
 
    }
}
result

Let me know if it doesnt work for you.

Thanks Vijay -- this works for me too.

Hi Bryan,

The timestamp is stored in milliseconds from "the beginning of time".

You could try the solution in this post: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3371326/java-date-from-unix-timestamp

Cheers,

// Svante

new Date(lastLoginTimeStamp)

will give you a human date, as it will be implicity toString'd. You might want to use a DateFormat depending on your meaning of "human readable".
