When creating a new version in Jira through Jenkins we want to set the current date in "Start Date" for Version Reports. Currently we have to manually edit them in Jira after each build in Jenkins.
This field was never added to the Jira Rest Java Client Library even though it is available on the Jira Rest API (undocumented).
If I query a particular version with a "Start Date" already filled in Jira, I can see the field "startDate".
