You can search for all issues you have transitioned in the last to days with this JQL

status changed BY username AFTER -2d

But this does not work for "updated" or "updateDate". For the current versions of JIRA the history operators can only be used with the Assignee, Fix Version, Priority, Reporter, Resolution and Status fields.


What if you watch your issues?


project = <project> AND updated >= -7d AND watcher = currentUser()

I don't think you can do this directly, other than by reading your activity stream in your profile.

Chaithra's answers are close, but the problem is that Jira searches by issue, not by person, so "all changes made by X" queries are rather hard to construct.

I think this needs some JQL coding...

The answer is seemingly "You can't". Even though that information exists somewhere (you can see it in the bug history) you can't search for it.

Too bad. When I had that search in one of the previous bug trackers I used, I would use it all the time.

The closest I could come to the requirement is:

1) Status changed by user within last x days

2) Created by user within last x days

3) Assignee changed by user within last x days

(status changed BY currentuser() after -8d) or (created &gt;= -8d and creator = currentuser() ) or (assignee changed by currentuser() after -8d)

Still not covered: Commented without change of status or assignee

Note: At least the "assignee changed" part of the query seems to work weird with the dates, you might want to increase the required number of days by 1 to really catch all issues

Just in case this might be useful to anybody:

Even though the exact case scenario here commented has no JQL solution (at least I don't see it), another good filter to find stuff you've done is worklogAuthor = currentUser()

To look for issues that were at some point assigned to you but you forgot to log time to them:

assignee was currentUser() and worklogAuthor != currentUser()

To look for issues that were at some point assigned to you and are still open but no time has been logged in them in a while:

assignee was currentUser() and statusCategory != Done and worklogDate < startOfDay(-x)

where x is the ammount of days where no time has been logged.

There is a JIRA suggestion for this feature: you may vote for it, but it is an old request.
As for now, and what I see, the nearest you can get to this is using the JQL Mykola Novik posted.


Use the Activity Stream Gadget in a private Dashboard


Use a Database Query if you have access to the database

In analogy to the Activity Stream Gadget, it queries the item-history, but you've got more options for filtering, grouping, etc.

The result looks like:


select ji.issuekey, ji.issuetype,, cg.created changedate, ci.field, ci.oldvalue, ci.oldstring, ci.newvalue, ci.newstring
from changegroup cg
join changeitem ci on ( = ci.GROUPID)
join (select, p.pkey||'-'||ji.issuenum issuekey, ji.summary, it.pname issuetype, ji.created
      from jiraissue ji
      join project   p  on (ji.project   =
      join issuetype it on (ji.issuetype =
      ) ji on (cg.issueid =
where author = ''                      -- modify user
and cg.created &gt; to_date('08.08.2016','')  -- modify date
and cg.created &lt; to_date('10.08.2016','') 
and issuetype in ('Bug','Story','Epic')              -- modify issuetype
order by cg.created


This data is right on the UI, and clearly of significant interest to users but you can't extract it.

Not thought out.

You will have to use filter

Example : issuetype = Bug AND updated >= -2d

Thanks, but that's not what I'm asking. I only want the issues which I have changed, not all issues which have been changed by anyone.

In JQL you can search if Status/ Resolution is changed by X user, but this doesnot mean whatever X user has changed.

issuetype = Bug AND updated >= -2d and status changed BY X USER

You can do assignee WAS currentUser() but the problem with that is you'll see any issue that you've been assigned to at some point. So not ideal, but closer.

This was very helpful for me. I could then use fixVersion to see all issues that had been assigned to me in the current release (or a previous release). Thanks!

This worked for me:

assignee = currentUser() OR reporter=currentUser()

to find all the stories and issues changed by current user since the project

just add AND updated = StartofWeek() at the end and gives you weekly changes


Doesn't work. I've got a bug I worked on and assigned to a colleague, your search won't find it.

Toolkit is the one that works closed . It provides field LastUpdatorCommentor which will show value of last user edited or commented whichever is latest
