I find it interesting that this is one of the FIRST things I wanted to do when tossed into a project having over 7,000 issues. What I want to do is to look at aggregate statistics showing how long it takes a bug to go from "In Progress" (not "Created") to "Closed" and to look at the average between priority groups to see if things are being classified correctly so that predictions for delivery dates can be improved.
The only way to get this is to be able to export Issues AND link them to exported IssueHistory.

Thanks for your reply, though copy and pasting would not be good idea in my case as i am having around 500-600 issues in my JIRA project.
Do we have any plugin available for this which significantly export History of issue. I found one plugin - Exporter but it only facilitates to export Comments and Transitions besides default JIRA export.
In support of pratiyush.rounak, I need change history to get stats on aging of items throughout their status change lifecycle. The only way to get this is through the change history that gets linked to an issue or sub-task.
To make a point to Atlassian, instead of asking "Why do you need this?", why don't you think in terms of Big Data and simply provide the information to us in a digestible format and let the users decide what they want to do with it.
In case anyone is interested in the solution for JIRA Cloud, there's now plugin that exports history of changes to JIRA issues - Advanced Export.
Any custom or standard field can be exported with every change as a separate row to make it easy to analyse in spreadsheet or postprocess in any other way.

Tomasz, any plans to add a single issue export function or build another addon?
i havent found a plugin that can export a single issue with full details, i.e. comments, transition, history, activity.
we have audit requirements and we have to selectively export full details for request specific issue.
I evaluated Advanced export and it seems pretty straightforward, but doesnt meet my needs.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
