Problem solved. 

i used this script : 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def dateCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12345") // Date time fields require a Timestamp
issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateCf, new Timestamp((new Date()).time))

thanks for this document:

Without knowing what you've tried, it's quite likely someone will give you the code you've already used.

Could you tell us what you've tried?

hi, i had some weird behavior (could not create new Timestamp) but seems like today it is working better... not sure what i did wrong.

Hi Raphael ,

i am searching for the same but here i need to capture the date while i click on new transition for every transition i need to pick the date. And when i ever i click on new transition i need to capture the date . Please guide me through the steps and hoe to implement this.
