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"
