How to get all item.field from jira_issues using Python API


Hi I am using this code to extract all issues from Jira

 for issue in jira_issues:


            for history in issue.changelog.histories:

                for item in history.items:

                       d = {

                            'id':              ,

                            'keyId':                 issue.key,


                            'Ticket_created':  str(issue.fields.created)[:23],

                            'Proj_id':    ,


                            'Proj_key':           issue.fields.project.key,


                            'Status_cat':       issue.fields.status.statusCategory.key,

                            'Status_col':       issue.fields.status.statusCategory.colorName,

                            'Author':    ,


                            'Last_update':    str(issue.fields.updated)[:23],

                            'Timestamp':      str(history.created)[:23],

                            'FldName':          item.field,

                            'From_':               item.fromString,

                            'To_':                    item.toString


              if d.keys():

                    issues = issues.append(d, ignore_index=True)

If the item has only one item.field the code is correct, but with multiple item.fields (status, time spent, assignee) the code is wrong because it is taking only the first one.

What can I do to get all item.fields instead only the first one?

Hi @Marcelo Cornes Lucas 

Do you need to export the history of changes for all issue fields? I'm not strong in coding, but I can suggest an alternative solution if you don't mind.

You can try exporting history with Issue History for Jira app. It takes a few clicks to do.

The app is developed by my team. There is a 30-days free trial, so you can check if it meets your needs.

Hi @yuliia_b__SaaSJet_  

Yes, every day we run a python script to load daily data from jira as part of an ETL process.

The final goal is to show historical data in a dashboard using Qlik Sense.

Thanks for the answer

Hi @Marcelo Cornes Lucas ,

You can use Qlik Sense & Qlik View Connector for Jira
This will save you a lot of hard work.
You can ask questions by writing to
