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
