I'm trying to understand the velocity of individual developers - how many story points they complete on average in a sprint over the past year. However, the assignee changes as it goes through the workflow, so I'm trying to only report on the ORIGINAL assignee for each ticket. Is this possible?
Hi @Theresa Gothard ,
I'm pretty sure there's many ways to achieve this, but two approaches come to mind immediately. The techy one and the Automation-based one:
If you create your reports through some sort of scripts, you could simply read the history and go back to the first change on the assignee field – or the originally created issue, if it was created with an assignee. This would feel most natural to me, especially with Jira Expressions.
Using Automation (and a custom field)
Simply add a custom field to hold the original assignee. Use an automation to set the field whenever the assignee changes and the field is empty. Let's say you called your custom field Buddy, then your automation could look like this:
You can then report on that field.
Hope that helps,
Hi @Theresa Gothard and ,thanks for your question.
As per my knowledge, this feature is not available.
To create a report on this, you can first assign a specific person in a customfield (for example, First Assignee), and then solve the report using this method; in addition, this link can assist you with that.
