JQL previous status

Is there any JQL command (from Atlassian or 3rd party plugin) to query an issue previous status? I need to check all issues whose last transition was from status B (previous) to A (current).

Currenly JQL support:

status CHANGED FROM "B" TO "A"

but I need the last transition only, and the above can return any transition in the issues history.

 

Thanks in advance,

Another idea would be to use a scripted field which would show the last status (see Hennings answer how to get that) and then search for that one.

"Last Status" ~ "B" and status = "A"

Thanks, this is a good approach.

I'm not aware of such a JQL function. The closest you can currently get is

status CHANGED FROM "B" TO "A" and status = A

optionally add

and not status changed from "C" to "A"
status CHANGED FROM "B" TO "A" and status = A
and not status changed from "C" to "A"

adding above both rows don't return any result. Ideally it should return the result set.

currently using following lines
AND STATUS  CHANGED FROM "B" TO "A"
AND STATUS WAS NOT IN ("C","D","E")
