How do I query Story Point updates in JIRA?

Emily Bichler August 18, 2017


Within the JIRA tickets, there is a history that shows Story Point changes. I want to be able to query this data, so I don't have to go look through each ticket. 

Is there a way to do this? I get an alert that this is not supported for the Story Point field. 


If there's not a way to do this, will JIRA be supporting this action in the future? 

Thank you,

Hi Emily,

You'll want to review the Communities post Query to track the story points changes on the Stories JIRA for an alternate method to do what you're trying to do without an add-on.

Going forward I would definitely recommend adding a JAC ticket for this Suggestion and post the link here so the Community can vote on it to add impact.  Add your use case to the comments and the more votes we get on that issue the better chance we have of getting it added to JIRA natively.

I wanted the same thing, and created the request.

Is there a way to do this with a plugin or addon or something...

Looking for the same here, I would like to take estimation performance back to the team in order to start the discussion about improving...

I wonder why such an obvious question and improvement is already taking more than 1,5 years to even get picked up... :(

Agreed - this is something that teams use for capacity planning and estimation maturity.  Why don't you start supporting it ATLASSIAN??

Next-gen this, next-gen that ... to try and persuade new customers and new approaches. But evidently Jira has reached its limits supporting Agile teams in depth? Story points field is not a basic internal field, perhaps solving ouyr issue is more structural. So moving newer projects to MS Azure DevOps as my collegues are doing wil be the next stop for me, I fear...

Its 2024 and i still done see any way to populate a list of all issues where story point field has been updated in the current sprint?

Have I missed any update or does Atlassian still not support this?

Hi @Mithila NBhat 

You are right. Unfortunately, JQL doesn't support history searches for the Story points field. Basically, there are only six fields supported for querying past changes: assignee, fix version, priority, reporter, resolution, and status.

The built-in alternatives that can help to shed some light on how the story points are changing during the Sprint are Burnup Chart and Sprint Report:
