Setting custom field "Target end" via REST API: Timezone problem?

Rainer Montag November 12, 2019

Hello, we are using

Jira Server 7.13.9

Portfolio for Jira 3.14.0

Default User Timezome in Jira: (GMT+01:00) Berlin


I have a problem setting the custom field "Target end" via Jira REST API, that the date set ist always shown one day behind:

1) When I create an issue using REST POST /rest/api/2/issue, I set e.g.

        "customfield_10901": "2019-11-28T14:00:00.000+0000",

 where customfield_10901 ist the "Target End" field

2) After creating, the UI shows me "27/Nov/19" and the REST GET /rest/api/2/issue/{key} is returning

"customfield_10901": "2019-11-27",


For me it looks like a issue with converting the timestamp, especially:

- time information is ignored and set to "00:00:00" (?)

- 00:00:00 GMT+1 is converted to 23:00:00 UTC the day before (?)

- the day before is stored and shown in Jira (?)


I also try to set

        "customfield_10901": "2019-11-28",

but the same result it is shown in UI and REST as 27.


Can anybody confirm this, if this is a bug in the Portfolio Plugin?


Thanks in advance,
