How do I remove time from duedate field - script runner / groovy email


I am using Script Runner to send a custom email on transition. Please can some tell me if it is possbile to remove the time element from the DueDate field when included in the email?

So I have added: "Due Date: ${issue.DueDate}<br>" to the email template, and when I receive the email I get

Due Date: 2014-05-23 00:00:00.0

How do I truncate the timestamp?

It's pretty ugly but you could use this:

&lt;% out &lt;&lt; new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy").format(issue.dueDate.time) %&gt;

Thanks for fast response. I tried it, but get the following error on the transition screen:

Hrm... it worked fine for me in the preview screen. I think this is an issue with osworkflow. I changed my answer, please try that.

works for me - thanks
