How to view changes made in your project?

I'm quite new on using JIRA, and somehow an issue (it was a done issue) has gone from the backlog and I don't know who deleted it. I just want to trace down those kind of changes, if possible. Is there anyway to do that?

If the issue was indeed deleted it is gone and there is no history to investigate. Are you sure it was deleted? Have you run a basic query to search for it?

Hi Jack. 

I know that, once it got deleted, it'll be gone. Already run the basic query, and resulted none.

I'm just a bit curious, how to check when and which account has deleted it (not to look for someone to blame though), is there any kind of log for changes in the project? is there a way to check them?


If you have enabled the admin audit logging (use the function search in the admin section to find it, look for "audit"), then it records "issue delete" with the key, person and date/time.  But not the content.

Nic, that is nice to know for sure. I assume this is available in cloud too? I will have to remember this for sure as it could be quite useful. 

I vote for this as the answer!

Sadly, no, the Clouod audit log has dropped "issue delete".
