JQL Query Historical Data


Is there a JQL Query to use historical data to see original date and the final date of a sprint. 

I am trying to use a historical data to query this to find the dates of what I originally put for the sprint and where it actually ended.

Unfortunately the WAS operator only works on a very select group of built-in fields:

(Note: This operator can be used with the Assignee, Fix Version, Priority, Reporter, Resolution, and Status fields only.)

I've not tried this add-on, but it purports to let you export issue history if you needed to do analysis on custom fields:

Issue History for Jira 

I think there used to be something similar for Server/Data Center...

Ah, I think I was remembering the venerable Time in Status add-on, but I'm not 100% sure the whole history is available.

Another app I found that looks interesting is this:

Issue History Collector

And this is a pretty great article by @Prince Nyeche on how you can probably extract this information using the REST API:

Extracting complete issue history via API 

Alas, none of this is as simple as a JQL query though.
