I merged a few internal dev-only versions (like "fall-release") to their actual release version (like "5.0")... but I picked the wrong target version. I can't undo that operation in bulk. Now I have a couple hundred tickets mixed with about a thousand tickets in the incorrect target version.
I was able to rescue about a hundred of them by looking for tickets in the incorrect version last updated by me. But, I didn't notice my mistake for about week, so I'm not the "last updated by" person on every ticket. JIRA warns that I can't do a history search on the last updated by field (like "WAS IN").
I can't do a history search for the original internal version because it's no longer in the list. JIRA seems to destroy the merged version completely. There's no sense recreating it, because it gets a new internal ID or something, so it's not considered the "same" version.
I can search through the History tab on every ticket in the incorrect version looking for the record of my version change and correct it, but that's going to take ages.
I started looking through my Activity Stream, but that's taking forever given that the changes were a week ago. Is there a more efficient view of this activity?
Anyone have any other advice?
We have an integration with our CI server so that the successful build version gets recorded in any ticket referenced in a commit message from that build. So, I actually have a record of released versions! The original versions were all released, so I'm sure they all have build versions.
I was able to construct a query like
fixVersion IN ("spring-release", "fall-release") AND ("Build Version" ~ "4.0*" OR "Build Version" ~ "5.0*")
I think this is going to help me out. I'm sorry it's not generic, but maybe it's not a bad idea to create a similar integration
