Track history of Version release dates

I am looking for a way to track the history of Project Version release dates. For managerial purposes, it would be nice to be able to analyze this history. For example, it would be valuable to be able to answer the following questions: 'how many versions are having their release dates pushed back?', 'how many times are their release dates being pushed back?', and 'how long are their release dates being extended?'.

It does not seem like JIRA itself supports this functionality, but does anyone know of any plugins that support this? If not, I will likely end up submitting an enhancement request with Atlassian.

JIRA does store this functionality; simply use the JIRA Audit Log. The changes to Project Version release dates can be retrieved via the JIRA REST Java API as AuditRecord objects.


The Audit Log (in Admin -> System -> Troubleshooting and Support -> Audit Log) entry for a release date change would look something like this:

Unfortunately, JIRA does not store this functionality and probably no plugin can do this as the data is not even stored.

Is it not possible to create a plugin that detects whenever a release date is changed, and stores that information (e.g. using Active Objects)?
