      Atlassian Update – 06-02-2019

      Hi everyone,

      We have recently reviewed this issue and the overall interest in the problem.

      Based on our assessment, the real issue is that Jira does not handle dates well as it does not take a timezone into an account. The current bug, with the release date, is just one of such examples.

      We would not be able to address the release date case independently, yet addressing the problem completely in the product would require a significant investment. Unfortunately, it's not high on our priority list, and will not be fixed in the foreseeable future, i.e. in next 6 months.

      Although we're aware the issue is still important to those of you who were involved in the conversations around it, we want to be clear in managing your expectations. The Jira team is focusing on issues that have broad impact and high value, reflected by the number of comments, votes, support cases, and customers interested. Please consult the Atlassian Bugfix Policy for more details.

      We understand how disappointing this decision may be, but we hope you'll appreciate our transparent approach and communication.

      Atlassian will keep the issue open and continue to watch this issue for the further updates.

      Thank you,
      Ignat Alexeyenko

    Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Summary

      If the user timezone and system timezones are different (and the system's timezone is one day ahead of the user's), JIRA will show the Release Date in the Release Version popup one day behind the release date in the Versions page.

      Environment

      • JIRA 6.4.8
      • System Timezone: Australia/Sydney
      • User Timezone: US/San Fransisco

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Navigate to Administration » System » General Configuration and set the System Timezone to Australia | Sydney.
      2. Set your user's timezone to GMT-7.
      3. Add a version with a release date to a project.
      4. Select the ••• menu and 'Release' next to the version name.

      Expected Results

      The release date would be the same as defined in the version release date.

      Actual Results

      Original Description

      When setting up a version with Release Date of for example Dec 31, 2014. When trying to Release that date the pop-up model now shows one day prior in version v6.3.13. Prior versions did not change the release date to 1 day prior to that which has been set.
