Custom interface - last changed by field in cloud api

Creating a custom interface that will create and update issues - changes occurring in Jira and in custom app.  Will be pulling from source application every few hours anything that has changed in certain projects. 

What I can't figure out is how to differentiate between those updated from the interface in the last run and those updated by other Jira users.

I will have a timestamp stored on the other end to just pull tickets that have changed since the last run.  But I will also be updating issues on the custom app side to send to Jira - and I don't want to accidentally pick up those tickets in the pull.

Standard api has last updated date I can use in jql.  I see that I can add a custom field for last updater or commenter.  However - this custom field does not show up in api like the rest of the custom fields.  Field isn't available in advanced filter jql.

Anyone have a hint on how I might be able to accomplish this?

History for a ticket is available in the /rest/api/3/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/changelog endpoint, documented here:

I guess you'll need to grab all of the changes and then the most recent one will show who last updated it.
