Hi Hamid - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Thank you John.

May be my question was not clear.

I'm looking for the table which contains the categories status (to do, in progress, Done, ...).


CHANGEGROUP and CHANGEITEM save the status changes over the time.

None of them.  It's in the logic.

This is one of many reasons you should not be reading the database - it is hard to read and does not have everything you woud guess might be in it.

Could I ask what problem you are trying to solve that makes you think SQL is an answer?

I have the statuscategory field on jiraissue table that with 4 values (1,2,3,4). 

My question is : How can map these values to these onces : ToDo, In Progress, Done, ... the 4th one undefined for me.

There is no status category field on the jiraissue table.

There is a status field, but that refers to status.

To map the status to the statuscategory, you are going to need to code for it.

Thank you for your answer.

sorry, the statuscategory field is on issuestatus table.

I have already done things manually.

Ah, that makes more sense.  Thanks.
