Issuetype Creation information

Hi,

Thanks in advance.

I would like to know if either one or both of the following is / are possible...

1) A select sql statement to query the JIRA database to know the creation information (Creator, Timestamp, Etc. ) for an issue type.
2) If someone knows the Tablename which holds the creation information (Creator, Timestamp, Etc. ) for an issue type.

We have a ton of issues which where created by people who have left the company or moved on in the same company to a better / higher role.

No, it's generally not possible.  The data "issue type created" simply is not stored as a rule.

If you had the administrator audit logging enabled at the time of creation, then that does store date/time and user of new, updated and deleted issue types.  But it doesn't store it permanently, and it is not retrospective - enabling it now won't magically recreate the data from the past.

If it were enabled, then the best place to look is in the audit log interface, you'll be able to search for "issue type" to get all the updates.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your answer, I do have the audit log enabled but at every upgrade that log is lost somehow.
