jira history for several projects.png

Most of the teams in Jira work with a bunch of different projects. One of our Issue History users asked us: “Is it possible to monitor Jira history of changes for a few projects at once? We at SaaSJet, always try to be helpful and find solutions. And also, we’d like to share this example with Atlassian Community so that everyone with a similar issue can solve it.

🟢 Solution: Track all ticket’s updates with JQL filter + Issue History for Jira

Issue History for Jira is the report-building plugin where you can track all issue changes in one place. There is no direct way to get issue changes updated by a specific person for a few projects. With JQL, you can’t get past changes for the updater. But there is a backway.

Step-by-step instruction

  1. Open an Advanced issue search and create JQL filter:Advanced issue search jira.png
  2.  Select all projects where you want to find changes:
    project in ("Fin Requests","Marketing","Design","SLA Line") JQL projects.png
  3.  Save this JQL request as a filter: Projects filter in jira.png
  4.  Apply filter for Issue History for Jira with Updated by option. Choose the user for who you want to see changes. Jira history changes for few projets.png
