CHANGED keyword on issue type Edited

According to the JIRA advanced searching docs, the CHANGED (and *WAS*) operators can be used with the Assignee, Fix Version, Priority, Reporter, Resolution and Status fields only.

Are there any plans to add this to the 'issuetype' field? We'd like to query when someone changed an issue type from a Bug to a Task, Bug to a Feature, or Feature to a Bug. Is there another way to query for this historical information?

Hi Jeff,

I think that's an excellent ask.  I would go to JAC and create a Suggestion for this feature and post the link here once you've created it so the Community can vote on the request and add impact.

In the meantime there is an article titled How to List Issue Type changes of Issues in JIRA that provides guidance on how to get a list of issue type changes of issues in JIRA:

  • Log in to JIRA database.
  • Run the following SQL command to list the changes:
select * from changeitem where field = 'issuetype';

Hopefully this helps.



Thanks! I created JRASERVER-66552 for the related suggestion.
