How do I create a report on the status and status change dates?

I am trying to create a report to show each and every status change (e.g. In Requirement, In Development, In Testing, Ready for UAT and Ready for Production) for the Jira tickets and the dates for when these tickets were moved to the various status. I don't seem to have that option. Any ideas?

Hello @Rita Sung 

You can try a third-party add-on - Time in Status for Jira Cloud. It generates a Status Entrance Date report, that shows the date when an issue has entered each of the statuses.


Hope you find it helpful.

Hi Mariana,

That is exactly what I am looking for in terms of report functionality.

Thank you for your quick response.

Kind regards,

Hello @Rita Sung ,

Our team at OBSS built Time in Status app for this exact need. It is available for Jira Server, Cloud, and Data Center.

Fundamentally, Time in Status allows you to see how much time each issue spent on each status and each assignee.

The app also has 4 types of date reports.

An issue can visit the same status more than once. You might need the first or last transition date in your report. Most of the time you need the transition date to a status but sometimes the transition date from a status is needed (to answer a question like: "What is the latest date this issue was in Resolved status?")

For the combination of these options, Time in Status offers 4 types of date reports:

  • First Transition To Status Date
  • Last Transition To Status Date
  • First Transition From Status Date
  • Last Transition From Status Date


The app has a REST API so you can get the reports from Jira UI or via REST.

The app calculates its reports using already existing Jira issue histories so when you install the app, you don't need to add anything to your issue workflows and you can get reports on your past issues as well.

Time in Status reports can be accessed through its own reporting page, dashboard gadgets, and issue view screen tabs. All these options can provide both calculated data tables and charts.

Using Time in Status you can:

  • See how much time each issue spent on each status, assignee, user group and also see dates of status transitions.
  • Calculate averages and sums of those durations grouped by issue fields you select. (For example, see average InProgress time per project and per issue type.)
  • Export your data as XLS, XLSX, or CSV.
  • Access data via REST API. (for integrations)
  • Visualize data with various chart types.
  • See Time in Status reports on Jira Dashboard gadgets

Hi @Rita Sung

There is a good solution for your request - Status Time Reports app developed by our team. It can display the time spent on specific statuses as well as status entry dates. You can create multiple reports and share these reports with your colleagues.


It provides reports on how much time passed in each status. It has grouping feature so that by grouping statuses(In Progress → In Review → Done) you can get total time. You can also export the report as CSV and open it in excel.

Once you enter your working calendar into the app, it takes your working schedule into account too. That is, "In Progress" time of an issue opened on Friday at 5 PM and closed on Monday at 9 AM, will be a few hours rather than 3 days. It has various other reports like assignee time, status entry dates, average/sum reports by any field(e.g. average in progress time by project, average cycle time by issue creation month). And all these are available as gadgets on the dashboard too.

Here is the online demo link, you can see it in action and try without installing the app. Hope it helps.

I would like to find out more about the ‘Time in Status Reports’ app to show the ‘Status Transition Dates’. Is it possible to filter this report so that I can only see Jira tickets for each stage for a particular release i.e. filter by the ‘Due Dates’ or ‘Sprints’? Can I also create and save more than one ‘Time in Status’ report for each release/sprint to be viewable by other users?
