Set field value : Is there way to get only the time value from date time picker custom field?

Hello,

 

I am using set field value (from groovy expression) post function. 

My requirement is to update a select list field (with options shift 1 m, shift 2, shift 3 etc) based on the "hour" value which should be extracted from custom field date time picker type. 

I use the groovy expression : 

issue.getAsString("Begin Date")

which is giving complete timestamp including date as shown in screenshot below: 

timevalue.pngCan i extract only the time value? 

I appended getTimeString() to the above code but it doesnt seem to work.

 

Any help?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

you can use all the methods of the Date class on the result of issue.get("Begin Date"): https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/Date.html

For example, to get the hours:

issue.get("Begin Date").getHours()

 Note that Java doesn't have a class to represent just a time value (without a date), so you'll have to manipulate the hours, minutes and seconds as numbers.
