How to find issues which are updated by a specific user using JQL?

I am looking for a little assistance with the above,

We require the ability to be able to report on/use filters to show how many issues are user has touched over a specific period of time (Including transitioning, commenting, editing), is this possible? 

I know it is possible to use; 

status changed by slloyd

which would show which statuses have been changed, but is it possible to go deeper in and see how many issues have exactly been touched?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Steven,

You can now use the updatedby() JQL function to get this information.


That is exactly what I want, but when I try to use this function it does not show up in the syntax help and I get an error when I run the query.  What do I need to do to get this function?

I have found out how to do this.  You need a statement like:

issuekey IN updatedBy(<username>)

Like # people like this

Thanks. For anyone interested here is more detailed info about how to use this filter:

Hello Steven,

To return all issues that have been "touched" by a specific user on JIRA, you will need to use a plugin to do this.

My recommendation is to use JQL Search Extensions for Jira that provide you a new parameter to search for any updated details on issues.
