How to get old Jira issue key based on the new Key value

Hi -

I have a situation where I want to find the old key of the ticket that have been moved to a new project. For example

tiket AAA-123 was moved to BBB-456. I have BBB-456 and how do I get the old key value. Is there any query GUI or Database that i can use to get this information out. I have about 500 tickets so I eally do not want to go to the history tab to find the old key value.

any help is very much appreciated.

You can find it from the "ChangeItem" table in JIRA. Look for rows where the field name is "Key".
