Format date returned by getReleaseDate()


I have the following behaviour script that on a create screen, based on "FixVersion" selection, autopopulate "Prod Date" field with selected FixVersion's Release Date. The script works in a way it does pull the release date and auto populate the "Prod Date" field. But I would like date to be formatted in default JIRA format (e.g. 15/Feb/17).

Any assistance here would be much appreciated.



import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version

def fixVersions = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def Proddate = getFieldByName("Prod Date")

Collection<Version> fixVersionsValue = (Collection<Version>) fixVersions.getValue()

def reldate = fixVersionsValue.releaseDate

What type ProdDate is? Is it a text or date field?

Hi Jamie,

The date formatting isnt working for me. Please see screenshot.

Because you've got a collection of Version objects. Do you want the release date from the first, the last, or what?

for the first you could use:


Thanks Jamie, that worked.


Could you also help troubleshoot the Rest endpoint

I am trying to achieve the following - In the same JIRA instance, I would like to pull Issues from one JIRA project to another and display the list as a select pulldown list.

With limited background in this, I am having trouble understanding why I dont see any Issues when I invoke the endpoint from the browser.



Does that have anything to do with this question?

No, it does not. I provided the link to the other thread, hoping you could help me there.
