How do I extract the date/time a collection of issues transitioned from one status to another? Edited

I'm wanting to report on the date/time issues transition from "Status A" to "Status B".  I'm not sure how to do this in JQL, or show the results in the issue navigator.  Is there a better approach?

I can see this data in each individual issue's history, but I'd like to report on collections of issues without having to investigate each one.

Hi Barrett,

I don't think you can do it with JQL.  The closest I've been able to get is using a WAS search to detect transitions during a certain time frame. 

Ex: status was statusname DURING ("2017-01-01","2017-06-01")

Not quite what you want, I know.

But, if you have JIRA Server, you can get the transition info out of the database with SQL!  I found it one day while looking to see which transition a user clicked to get from one status to the other.

The transition history is stored in a table called "OS_HISTORYSTEP."  In that table, the status is stored in the column called "step_id", the transition is in "transition_id" (view your transition IDs in your workflow), the person who did the transition is in the "caller" column, and the transition start and finsh dates are there as well.

I hope something in here helps you!
