We need help in configuring a couple of fields in Jira. We have admin rights. Please let me know if this would be possible. to UAT – Field exists. We want this to be auto filled once a story is moved to UAT by Developer

2.Date story moved from “to do” to “In-progress” . we need to create a date field to capture this automatically.


Please let me if there are any chances to do it. Please do needful.

Hi @uday ,

You would need any of the plugins like JWME/script runner/JSU

1. Add a post-fuction to the UAT transition to update/set field value to current date.

2.  Create a new field in your instance - Date story moved

and create a postfuntion as mention in 1, but for To Do --> In Progress.

Hi @Niranjan 

Thanks for your help ,

 we have script runner plugin.

But I am not able to see the postfunction update/set feld value to current date. please Will you explain it little bit more how to do.




@uday ,

Use the code in the postfunction

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12345") // Date time fields require a Timestamp
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date()).time))


customfield_12345 should be custom field id
