How can I make to create task by default in custom Status?


I would like to create a custom filed based on a transition in the work flow,

for example:

if an item moved from In Progress to Done 

i would like to capture who did it.

is it possible?

That's captured in the issue history already.  Can you not use that?

i would like to export this data in order to do some analysis 

and i couldn't any other way except maybe saving a value in the custom field

Ok, three options

1) Use a scripting add-on to provide a scripted field that pulls the data out of the history explicitly

2) Find or write an add-on that does much the same

3) Create a user-picker field, place it only on the "view" screens, and then use a post-function (again, probably from an add-on) that populates it with "current user" when the transition occurs



I undersdand i need to learn how to do scripting in JIRA 

maybe you have a nice starter guid ?

If not thx any way :)
