How to query for a task that has been in a certain status more that 2 times?

We'd like to create a report showing the issues that go through a specific status more that once. For example, if our workflow is Open -> In Development -> In Testing -> Done, I want a report of all the issues that are now done that went through the In Testing status 2 or more times.

Is this possible?

You could add a numeric custom field to the issue and each time it is transitioned into Test use a post function to update the field value by 1.

There is a post funtion ( Increase value of field ) in Misc Workflow extensions.

This could then be used in a search filter for the report.

Is this feature in the jira on demand version? I'm not seeing it and could really use this addition.

Nevermind - I added the Misc Workflow add-on and found out what I've been missing. Thanks for this post!
