Custom JIRA reports via SQL

I want to create a report based on a timeframe from the JIRA (ServiceDesk) database that can provide:

  • timestamp ticket opened
  • timestamp opened and by whom
  • timestamp changed and by whom
  • timestamp ticket closed
  • Subject/topic of the task

and possibly other basic details.    I don't see this capability in any plugins I've looked at, and I don't believe we should actually need a plugin for this, as it's all in a MySQL database.   A simple tabular SQL report would suffice.

Anyone doing something like this?   What would the relevant fields be I would be concerned with.

Couldn't this all be handled by searches inside the Service Desk system?

I just did an issue search and filtered by my Service Desk project name. Then I included the following columns:

  • Summary
  • Created
  • Creator
  • Resolution (resolution status/name)
  • Resolved (date)
  • Updated (last updated)

Then you could filter down by date range.


I would need to craft something in the search language, something similar to :


updated >= -2w order by updated DESC


While this is handy, I want to have this in a tabular format that I can print out reasonably or include in a document.   I know these can be exported to PDF.    Are the schema fields documented somewhere.

I had thought a simple MySQL query would do the job.
