we need the automatic date while moving from one status to another status Edited

Hi Team,


We need help in configuring a couple of fields in Jira. We have admin rights. Please let me know if this would be possible.


  • date to UAT – Field exists. We want this to be auto filled once a story is moved to UAT by Developer.
  • Date story moved from “to do” to “In-progress” . we need to create a date field to capture this automatically.

To create the date field just go to the custom fields screen and create a new custom field of the date type.

To make those custom date fields take the value of a transition I guess there might be a handfull of options out there:

  • An automation - Automation for jira - a vanilla custom date/time field that is populated with the current date/time when the automation criteria are matched
  • A calculated custom field - jira misc custom fields - acalculated date/time field that gets the value of the date/time at the moment the configurated transition is executed
  • Postfunction on transition - a vanilla custom date/time is populated by the postfuncion "edit custom field" to the value %%CURRENT_DATE_TIME%%. I can't remember the name of the plugin that provided with this option but you should be able to find it with a quick searck.
  • More scripting options (scriptrunner, mygrovy... )
