How to set the due date to future date in jelly script


I have a jelly script that creates Issues. I want to set the Due Date field to the current Date + 30 days. I can get the current date using the code below, but can anyone tell me how to add 30 days to the current date (in the code below both timestamp and formattedDate give me the current date)?



<core:new className="java.util.Date" var="timestamp" />
<core:new className="java.text.SimpleDateFormat" var="format">
<core:arg type="java.lang.String" value="yyyy-MM-dd" />
<core:invokeStatic className="java.util.TimeZone" method="getTimeZone" var="timezone">
<core:arg type="java.lang.String" value="GMT" />
<core:invoke on="${format}" var="formattedDate" method="setTimeZone">
<core:arg type="java.util.TimeZone" value="${timezone}" />
<core:invoke on="${format}" var="formattedDate" method="format">
<core:arg type="java.util.Date" value="${timestamp}" />

I was able to get it to work... now when I auto create an issue with a jelly script the due date is automatically set to the current date + 30 days with the code below...

<core:invokeStatic className="java.util.Calendar" method="getInstance" var="CalendarField"/>

<core:invoke on="${CalendarField}" method="add" var="StartDate">
<core:arg type="int" value="7"/>
<core:arg type="int" value="30" />

Hope this helps someone.


Hi Mike - any chance you can share the full script? Or how the first part you posted and the second part go together?

Essentially, i'm trying to create an issue with Jelly, with the date in the summary. I used the first part from above to get this working fine (Thanks!), but what I want to do next is change it to me tomorrow's date rather than today.

Thanks very much
