How to find the current fixVersion of an issue.

I see two rows for an issue in the nodeassociation table which implies that the issue was moved from one fixVersion to another fixVersion. Am i right?

If so how do i find the current fixVersion of the issue.

Is this detail present in the "jiraissue" table or any other table.

Your answers please...

You can get FixVersion from changeitem table.

This what happens in database when FixVersion is set for issue:



UPDATE jiraissue SET UPDATED='2014-04-15 10:01:55' WHERE ID=90600


INSERT INTO changegroup (ID, issueid, AUTHOR, CREATED) VALUES (412705, 90600, 'admin', '2014-04-15 10:01:55')


INSERT INTO changeitem (ID, groupid, FIELDTYPE, FIELD, OLDVALUE, OLDSTRING, NEWVALUE, NEWSTRING) VALUES (556908, 412705, 'jira', 'Fix Version', null, null, '10001', 'version 2')

Can you please tell me what will be the values in the "OLDVALUE, OLDSTRING, NEWVALUE, NEWSTRING" when the issue is moved to another version?

It's previous value (fix version). Anyway you can get all history of "Fix Version" for a particular issue with this:

changegroup, changeitem, jiraissue

( and
( and
(changeitem.field='Fix Version') and

Where IS-444 is issue key for which you want history.

Just filter newest entry and you will get current "Fix Version".

If that helps, you may probably want to mark this issue as answered. :)

when i gave the following query


select * from changeitem where field='Fix Version' and fieldtype='jira' 
and OLDVALUE is not null and OLDSTRING is not null and NEWVALUE
 is not null and NEWSTRING is not null

i dont get any rows at all.

But there are some issues which were moved to other versions from their original version.So i am bit confused now.

It's probably caused, because at one moment in between version switch there were no Fix Version. It usually happens when you remove old version and add new version. In database it's written as 2 transitions:
* old=v1 new=null
* old=null new=v2

Thanks this is what i was expecting :-)

but i see only one row in nodeassociation table for one issue which is moved from one version to another version . So i guess this table will be updated everytime the version is changed. Am i right?

Yes, the point of the line in the table is that it shows the current version(s)
