Hello @RainBow

Thank you for reaching out.

I understand that you are trying to retrieve a list of issues which had a specific component in the past. Is it correct?

You can use JQL query to return it, like the one below:

component was "xyz" and component != "xyz"

Now, if you want to simply return a list of issues with their first component that was posteriorly changed, I believe JIRA does not provide this kind of feature. An option would be to:

1 - Create a new text custom field

2 - Use the Automation for JIRA plugin to properly add the component value to the custom field every time it is updated, so you will be able to return the issues in a JQL filter together with the history information of the component field.

Let me know if this information helps.

You are welcome, @RainBow

Have a nice day. :)

hi @Petter_Gonçalves


What should I do in or the to use the "was" operator, along with "component", according to Jira JQL documentation "was" operator is not supported for "component" as a field of reference:


How do you make it work??
