JIRA SQL: find average time in status X in


I am trying to build a sql query (postgres) that will return the average time issues spent in status X given a timefrime (for instance in current month).

Has anyone tried this?

Thanks in advance.

I found was I was looking for here:


After some minor changes for POSTGRES it shows the same info you get in the Transition tabs for the issue, i.e., Time in Status. Then I had to average it over all issues for each state.

Hi Adolfo,

I have tried this logic, but not from DB, I tried getting data from JIRA server by JIRA REST Java Client on JIRA has jql you can use it.
