Date field resets to incorrect format in Zephyr( test case issues. Did any one experience the same

Scenario: create a test cycle. Set the "From" and "To" fields to a future date by way of the date picker. The date field now shows a date on the format "YYYY-MM-DD"

Save, then immediately or later select "edit cycle". The date selected previous is shown, but now on the format "YY/ShortMonthName/DD"

When trying to save the following message is given:


Invalid date format. Please enter the date in the format "yyyy-MM-dd".'

Hi Suresh,

This was solved in our latest version of Zephyr for JIRA 2.2. It was a known error in Zephyr for JIRA version 1.7. Once you upgrade to Zephyr for JIRA 2.2 will not get the error anymore and you can use the format yyyy-mm-dd when creating a cycle.

Kind Regards,


We are also having this issue. Glad to know it will be resolved when updating to version 2.2
