Is there a way to get a point-in-time view for a feature?

I'd like to pull a report on features showing such information as the number of story points in the feature, number of stories, etc. — pretty basic stuff — but I'd like to be able to have the report show this data for a specific date, e.g. `how many story points were in feature 22334 on 2024-01-04`

Is this possible within Jira? The query without the time/date constraint is fairly trivial, but I can't figure out how to make it show me the query as a historical view?

Hi @Morgan Harvey welcome to the community.  If you have a scripting tool plugin like scriptrunner you could script this and tap into the changeHistory for the ticket and would be able to pull that type of detail out for your report.

Another approach would be to create a custom field that you don't display on any screen.  You could write an automation to append into this field on change or date, then use that field in your report.

Hi @Morgan Harvey,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately that is not possible, Jira doesn't version control issues like for example Confluence does. The only option would be if you have a backup and restore that on a separate instance.
