Question:Connector Fetch REST API - How do I show a human readable date in Visualforce pages
Answer:

When using the REST API to fetch JIRA issue date data, it will return the value in epoch date format. You will need to manually convert the value to a more human readable format using code such as the following:

	// JIRA Issue Object.
    @testVisible class JIRAIssue {
 
        ...

        public String due_date { get; }
 		public String getFormattedDueDate() {
            if(this.due_date != null && this.due_date != '') {
                return DateTime.newInstance(Long.valueof(this.due_date)).format('dd/MM/yyyy', UserInfo.getTimeZone().getID());                
            }
            return null;
        }
    }
 

 

In the Visualforce page, add a new column which refer to the new method created above:

<apex:pageBlockTable value="{!Issues}" var="issue">
	
	...
	
	<apex:column headerValue="Due Date" value="{!issue.formattedDueDate}"/>
</apex:pageBlockTable>
