When using WAS/CHANGED, how to get historical field value?


I have following query: status CHANGED FROM Testing TO Reopened

I would like to return the Assignee value, which was after the change from Testing to Reopened, that is, who was it assigned too after it was reopened.

Is it possible?

The documentation for JQL Advance Searching (https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/advanced-searching-179442050.html#AdvancedSearching-WAS) said it's possible to used it against AssigneeFix VersionPriority,  ReporterResolution and Status fields.


status WAS "Resolved" BY jsmith BEFORE "2011/02/02"
