We are excited to say that datetime type is under construction and will be available in the nearest future.
Jira custom field and custom field type modules will be able to support the new datetime data type. This will enable the usage of dates with both time and timezone in both modules.

This is helpful but I cannot seem to get my field to render in the new issue view. If I set the field type to “string” my view function is called. If I set the field type to “datetime” it is not called. All other configurations (screens, context, etc) are the same. Is there some other trick to make this work?
Thank you for your interest and feedback. Unfortunately, the ‘datetime’ release announcement was mistakenly given prematurely (human error). We are currently working on this type of Custom Field, but it’s not finished yet. We apologise for any inconvenience. We will publish a new announcement once it’s successfully released.
