Is it possible to to get the latest date an issue has been assigned through Jira Structure?

Hi all, I noticed I can pull assignee but not the date of the most latest assignee. Is there someway I may have missed it within the Structure Documentation, or is the meta data not really available?

I assume its probably available via an API call but I was hoping for something to use within "Jira Structure".

Alternatively I may just create a field for this and use an automation to auto update it with a date/time each time a new user is assigned and use that value but I was hoping to get away from an automation for each project.

Hello Calvin !

It looks like you are using Structure for an onprem hosted instance of Jira.  Since this is the case, you can reference the History in a Formula.

Please try adding a new formula column and use this:

.FILTER($.field = "assignee").changegroup

It filters the history events where the assignee was changed.  It then filters it again to the last time that the field was changed and returns the date/time it was done.

You will just need to make sure to set the formula's formatting option to Date/Time.

Please let me know if it helps!
