After Issue typ has changed


Is there any one, who know if it is possible to search on tickets, that has have a certain issue type, but were the issue type has been changed.

E.g Ticket A-1234 has issue type Task, when it is created, and we have then changed to Request.  Later in the process. 

Now we would like to find all tickets that previus have had the Task, issue type.

Best Regards

Hi Tomas,

Sadly you cannot achieve the desired search using standard features on Jira, you must go for a third-party app instead. Using i.e. JQL Booster Pack you can type the following:


** Note that these are just some examples, you must tune your query to fit your needs **


• Find issues in which their issue type have ever changed:

issue IN issueTypeChanged()

• Find Open issues which once was a Task and their type has changed:

status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Task") 

status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Task", "*")

• Find Bugs in which their issue type have once changed to 'Story':

type = Bug AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("*", "Story")

• Find 'Open' issues in which their issue type have changed from 'Feature' to 'Story':

status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Feature", "Story")


Using this app you can also query issues moved from one project to another:




Hope this helps you to create awesome queries <3

Kind regards


Thank you so much, this will help a lot, like it already .



Hm, why do you want to find that tickets? 

As I see only  everything in issue history one by one. 

hence you can use jql like:

project=A and type =Request and type was Task

 unfortunately, was is not present to that field :(
