How long is the issue in a certain status

As FlowManager I'm interested in those issues that are "in progress" since - say - 10 workdays. How can I ask JIRA for those issues?

JIRA Suite Utilities plugin have a transitions tab but that is not useful for reporting. You can see the time in status for individual transitions there.

You will find some plugins with time tracking reports in the maketplace.

Regarding the above query, you can dosomething like this in JQL:

status changed to "In Progress" before -10d AND status = "In Progress"

It shows issues which were moved to "In Progress" before 10 days and are still in "In Progress". The problem with this approach is that, it will show issues even if they were moved to some other status in between!

Thanks for your fast help. Unfortunately your JQL-Query leads to "Expecting operator but got 'changed'". What did I do wrong?

Maybe it is the JIRA version. What version are you on?

Aha - that sounds good, because we're on the way to upgrade to v5.1 :-). Thanks for your advice!

That's why! It is available only from 4.4. You can still look for the reporting plugins.

The Version is 4.3 :-(

Jobin's query worked for me, thanks a lot.

We capture the date of milestone transitions in a custom field with a post function to copy the 'updated' field to the tracking field. It makes it easy to find issues that moved to the milestone status before or after. The trick is to put the post function AFTER the update post funciton or you'll get the last time the issue was updated. The date also appears along with all the other date fields in the issue view.
