Finding 'Who updated the custom field' through issue navigator?

I have 2 questions!

1. How to find the person who updated a particular custom field through issue navigator?

2. How to find all the JIRA issues in which a particular user updated a custom field through issue navigator?

Both of this are not possible unless you develop a plugin for it. You will have to develop a JQL Function which traverses the change history.

I am a newbie to JIRA (and JAVA). So writing a plugin to traverse the history field was tough for me. Hence I used a different plan to get my job done. I created a new custom field and made it as read-only using behaviours plugin. Whenever my first custom field was changed by the user, I updated the read-only custom field to hold the user who updated the first custom field.

Now I can search for that new custom field in issue navigator.
