How to show in a filter the date in which the issue has been transitioned to an status?

I have a flow with an status "Nuevo Centro Coste".  An issue can reach this status only once in its life.

I need to show the date on which the issue reached the status "Nuevo Centro Coste". Can I do that without creating a new Customfield to store the date?

Hi Begoña,

JIRA's issue navigator can only display system/custom fields that contain a specific value for it.

Since what you want here is more like a historic value of when something happened, it will not be possible to display that directly in a filter.

The best approach would be to create a date custom field as you suggested and set it to get the date on a transition.

In order to put the value for already created fields, maybe you could try inserting it directly from in the database.

Custom field values are stored in the customfieldvalue table.

The dates for the status change should be in the changegroup and changeitem tables.


Thanks! I'll create the customfield to show this information
