Hi @Shivaraj kumar - You can do that with a dashboard gadget.

1. Create a filter with all of the issues you want to see.

2. Add the Two Dimensional Filter Statistics gadget to a dashboard.

3. Use Status and Assignee as the X and Y axis as desired. 

I hope that helps!

Hi John,

  Thanks for your guidance. In the Two Dimensional Filter Statistics gadget, it will display the current status and current assignee but we want previous status and previous assignee also, for example, issue-1 is moved from X status to Y status with different assignee we want previous and present assignee of both X status and Y status also. if it is possible with JQL or any add-on please let me know.

You might could do that with two different filters and then have two different gadgets on the Dashboard - one for Previous Assignee and one for Present Assignee. Other than that, I don't think a single query is going to be able to show you want you want. 

but how do you get the previous assignee, if the Assignee field always returns the current assignee?

You would need to create a custom field that captures the previous assignee by using a post function on the transition. 

:) yep, that would solve it for the future but not retrospectively.

Probably several queries against Jira's API could get this info...
