Can the sysdate be populated to a field based on value selected from a list in a different field in iDalko Table Grid Editor?

I have a table with a list field called Status (a list with 2 values, Pass / Fail). When a row is added the Status field is not populated. The table I am using tracks test cases, and when a tester completes a test they select Pass or Fail from the Status list. When a value is selected I want the system date from the server to be populated to a date field. Is this possible?

I have looked at the gd.tracking property, but it won't meet this requirement because I don't want the date field populated on each change. I want the date field conditionally populated based on a value selected by the user.

Hi Valerie,

What do you mean with sysdate - is this a custom field in the issue or is this a column in the grid ?
Also - if you want to track who changed what row when, you can use the gd.tracking property, and display this information with<tracking field>



(Sorry if I misinterpreted your question earlier on)

This might be a bit of a stretch, but with the current available version you might solve it as follows

col.status = Status
col.status.type = list
col.status.query = select name, value, DATE_FORMAT(NOW(),'%d %m %Y') AS currentDate from testcaseOutcome_d1
col.status.query.ds = jira

col.reportDate = Reported On
col.reportDate.type = string
col.reportDate.formula = {status.currentDate}

* testcaseOutcome_d1 is a driving table containing the 2 potential outcomes (Pass, Fail).
* The query also calculates the currentdate (this is mysql dialect)
* the reportDate is calculated and actually retrieves the currentDate (as a string)

Would this work ?
