How to get values of fields when issue was created

We have option to get issue current log/history and history log of a issue. But that issue log does'nt contains any information about the fileds values which was assigned at the time of issue creation.

I need any JQL or API which will provide the complete log of a issue including the initial values.

or get the field values of issue when it was created.

Please help to resolve this issue.

If you have the issue and all ChangeHistoryItem objects of the issue you can "calculate" the values of all fields while the issue was created. It's either the current value if there is no ChangeHistoryItem for that field or it's the first getFroms() value for that field of the timely ordered ChangeHistoryItem objects for that issue.

Hi Henning,

thanks for the suggestion :-)

we are already doing the same approach as you have suggested, but I was wondering if there is any other direct method or any JIRA API available to get the values.
