Can we query issues in which custom fields(ex:sub-status field) was modified by a user in JQL ?

I need a query where it would list all the issues in which customfield (ex: sub-status) is changed by a user.

I know this can be done for system fields using 'changed by' and 'changed from' , how can we extend for cutom fields ?

You might try to add this custom field to the list of fields that are indexed by the Change History Indexer and try if the changed operator will work then

To achieve that you'll need to write a plugin which uses the following method and probably something more to add the field to the indexed fields


how is com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IndexedChangeHistoryFieldManager.addIndexedChangeHistoryField(IndexedChangeHistoryField) to be implemented in a plugin? just call it in updateChangelogValue() ?
