API call to use for status report

Could you please tell me which API call we should use to retrieve the the time a transition occurred on a specific issue or issue type?

Ideally, we'd like to see the time a ticket was in each status.

If you use Jira Java API then you have to use ChangeHistoryManager.

If you use Jira REST API then you can use GET /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey} with expand=changelog

Thank you!! Used - /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}?expand=changelog

You cannot get it directly thru REST. So only one way to get it thru REST, as advised by Alexey:


And then iterate over changelog of each issue and calculate time in each transition.
