Capture closed at date


I'm running Jira 4.4.5 and I'm looking to capture the closed date into a field when an issue is closed. I've looked into using the jira suite utilities plugin to fill a custom field with the current date when a post function is ran during the close issue workflow step. Unfortunetly, it does not support this functionality until Jira version 5. I cannot upgrade at this time so I'm looking for alternative solutions. My goal would be to export from the issue navigator into excel with a column for closed at date in the same way we have the resolution date.

Thank You.

We use the copy post function. We copy the Updated field to a 'date closed' field. The trick is to put the post function after the Update function otherwise you'll get the date the last update was done before the transition. We've been doing that since 3.x. We also capture the date for other milestone transitions so they can easily be searched on.

JIRA Enchancer Plugin could help. It's a commercial plugin though.

It seems that there are only two possibilities: use excel export or write your own plugin which has the desired function (custom field and post function).Sorry!
