Get a log of Backlog changes

We have several people that are able to modify the order of backlog items. (I know this is not meant to be that way;-) ) How can I see what changed in the backlog over time?

Another alternative would be to restrict access to the modification of the backlog order. How would I do this?

Thanks

Changing the order of backlog items is changing the rank. You need the 'Schedule Issue' permission to do that. You can restrict who can do it by adjusting the project permissions.

Also, you can track the rank changes by looking a the History of the JIRA ticket.

The drawback is that I need to check every ticket after the other. Is there a way to get e.g. all rank changes during the last week (including author)?

There is no way to do that now. You will have to rely on add-ons to do that. Not sure if there is one that gives that functionality.

I now made a SQL query to give me that. 

SELECT 
   grp.created, 
   grp.author, 
   (prj.pkey::text || '-'::text) || issue.issuenum AS ticket, 
   issue.summary, 
   item.newstring
FROM 
   jiraissue issue, changegroup grp, changeitem item, project prj
WHERE
   issue.id = grp.issueid 
   AND prj.id = issue.project 
   AND item.groupid = grp.id 
   AND item.field::text = 'Rang'::text 
   AND prj.pkey::text = 'XRWE'::text
ORDER BY grp.created DESC;

or Database. Yes smile
