Can you have a filter that shows issues where the issue type has been changed?

As part of a revised process - a team are wanting to raise Bugs as Bugs - but then for working them in sprint, convert them to Stories (as they can then capture the effort via story points). 

Is there a way to query 'issues where their issue type has been changed'?

 

Cheers, 

Andrew

My recommendation is to just add the Story Points field to the Bug screens. Then keep the items as Bugs.

Hi @Andrew McGrory 

Trudy's answer is correct, there's no native way of doing this without an App, or additional metadata.

But why would you want to do this?

---

You're going to lose visibility of what bugs have been found, how many were fixed, what versions they impacted, etc.

You'd be better to create a separate Story to "fix" the Bug. You could even have one Story for multiple Bugs.

---

I'd also suggest using Automation depending on what solution you decide on to help reduce manual intervention - for example, Automation could...

  • Generate the initial Story, populating relevant information
  • Populate a Label or Custom Field if the Issue Type is edited, so you can track Stories which were Bugs (given it's not possible natively)
  • ...etc

Hello @Andrew McGrory 

Welcome to the Atlassian community!

The short answer is no, not without a third party plugin.

There is a WAS operator, but it works with only a limited number of fields, and Issue Type is not one of those fields.
