Error [onresolve.jira.groovy.GroovyCustomField] Cannot format given Object as a Date

Hi,

our logs are flooded by exceptions2014-03-17 10:25:15,481 IssueIndexer:thread-1 ERROR

mstoppl 621x442x1 2wnvmr 10.42.42.43 /secure/admin/jira/IndexReIndex.jspa [onresolve.jira.groovy.GroovyCustomField] javax.script.ScriptException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot format given Object as a Date

javax.script.ScriptException: javax.script.ScriptException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot format given Object as a Date

we are unable to identify what custom field has this problem. Do you have any idea how to debug these errors?

Thanks in advance for your help

I don't think this is the same issue. Michal - go to Admin -> Script Fields, and look at the code.

Seems like one of the custom fields is using a datetime indexer, and somewhere in your code you are returning something that isn't a datetime... at a guess.

See this issue https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/212507/scripted-fields-run-code-regardless-of-being-on-screen-or-field-configuration We modified all of our scripted fields to exit the script if the issue being passed is not from the expected project.
