JQL find date when a label is added to a jira story


I have a scenario where i need to provide regular reports to different teams. each team manages work thru labels and they use it heavily.

Lets say there is a label "xyzlabel" and i want to know the date when this label was added to a jira stories in a project. at the end of the sprint we look at how many stories had this label applied each day.

Hi N R,

The labels field does not currently hold an updated date or time in a manner that is accesible with JQL as history searches do not support the 'labels' field.

In another post a user suggested searching for issues that were updated in the last day and have this label by using the query below:

project = "My Project" AND labels in ('my_label') AND updated > -1d

You can change the day range to find older tickets.  At this time I would also suggest going to JAC and creating a Suggestion ticket to have historical data added to the labels field!
