JIRA plugin for tracking time in current status

I know about JIRA Suite Utilities showing time in source status for the issue, but it is not possible to get time in current status.

For example, I can see how long it took to move issue from 'Open' status to 'In progress'. But once it is in 'In progress' status, I can't see how long it's been in this state without changing it.

Is there any plugin able to show how long does the issue stays in current status?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/recommendations.

You can use custom field with groovy runner: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/GRV/Scripted+Fields

You can modify "Total time this issue has been In Progress" example, so it will calculate what you need.

Hi Sebastian,

how I can change the 'In Progress' into the current status?



Have you tried Control Flow diagram bundled with GreenHopper?

No, I didn't try it. Thank you for the tip.


There is a Time in Status Plugin on marketplace. You can get reports depending on user, project and advanced mode. You can export the reports to excel also.
