How to extract the history of changes on the status and resolution of a bug?

Does anybody know what is the simplest way to extract the history of changes on the statuses and resolutions of a bug for a list of jira bugs in atlassian? Does advanced search help here?

Hi Mona,

You can view the history of an issue on a per issue basis by clicking into the 'History' tab. Unfortunately though it's not possible to view the history of multiple issues at once.

You can search through the history though by using the 'WAS' and 'CHANGED' JQL operators though. The documentation on this can be found at:

* https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching#AdvancedSearching-CHANGED

Cheers,

Matt

I noticed the operators in advanced search here

but have not figured this out yet. Thanks!
