post function to populate date time upon issue creation fails

C. Faysal Dec 05, 2013

i got a customfield (date time) wich needs to inherit issue creation time

so i added a postfunction and set it to get %%CURRENT_DATETIME%%

fails showing this error

com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.FieldValidationException: Invalid date format. Please enter the date in the format "dd/MMM/yy h:mm a".

any idea? i thought that was working like mentioned here https://jsutil.atlassian.net/browse/JSUTIL-50
