Script Runner - How to set a date picker custom filed to the current day

I want to know how to set a date picker custom filed to the current day? I tried a lot of way but no one works.

For example:

Date now = new Date()

Date cfDate = new Date(cfValues['DateFieldA'].getTime())

or

issue.setCustomFieldValue('DateFieldA', new Date())

Thanks very much!!

Take a look, which object you get if you get the custom field value and try to submitt an object of the same class while setting the custom field.

To get the class of the returned object use this

log.error cfValues['DateFieldA']?.class?.name

In this case I assume it's a Timestamp. If this is correct, you can try

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, (new Date()).toTimestamp())

cf is the customfield not the name of the customfield. See my comment here to see how to get the customfield object.

After updating the issue normally you have to save the issue, see here on how to do this.
