I need to update a date field (deliveryDate) with a specific value during a workflow transition.
Example : deliveryDate = createDate + 14days
I think I need to instal a Jira Plugin, I take a look about "Jira suite utilities" but I don't try it yet.
many people actually would like this feature to be implemented. Just have a lokk at this JIRA issue dealing with your problem.
When I was searching for a solution I stumbled upon a plugin which could do the trick but it's not supported and I have never tried to implement it.
This is quite straighforward with the plugin mentioned above. Your script is just:
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance() def customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager() def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Delivery Date") issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, issue.getCreated() + 14)
Providing this post-function is up at or near the top of the list of post-functions, this is all you need.
The Jira Suite Utilities has some basic functions (that, IMHO, Jira should have off-the-shelf), but doesn't have the more advanced stuff like manipulating fields. Christian's pointer to the scripting plugin is your best bet, as it allows a lot of flexibility.
